The fate of the show is in question now – according to THR, ABC was largely interested in the show if Paula took part in it!
“ABC was, naturally, very reluctant to indulge in such high figures for launching a new, untested reality show into a marketplace crowded with successful talent competitions,” THR’s James Hibberd wrote.
Maybe this means we’ll see Paula on The X Factor after all…
Paula Abdul is set to headline an updated version of Star Search for ABC.
No word yet on whether Star Search would interfere with fellow judge Simon Cowell‘s US version of The X Factor, which is set to debut in fall of 2011.
Star Search premiered in 1983 with host Ed McMahon and was briefly brought back to the airwaves in 2003 with Arsenio Hall.
