Karaoke projects look to capitalize on success of viral Jewel video

Undercover Karaoke with Jewel from Jewel

As the producers behind the “Funny or Die” video “Undercover Karaoke with Jewel” prepare to adapt the concept into a reality TV pitch, at least one producer with a similar idea is dusting his concept off.

Karaoke Undercover
Juma Entertainment, which is behind the CMT karaoke-themed gamer “The Singing Bee,” has been working on a concept similar to the “Funny or Die” video for several years now.

The similarly titled “Karaoke: Undercover” already has a treatment; according to Juma Ent. prexy Bob Horowitz, the show would pit regular karaoke singers vs. professional singers (undercover). “Can Lionel Richie win a karaoke contest on Lionel Richie karaoke night at a local bar?” the show asks.

Juma is now aggressively pursuing a deal for its own show — which means, get ready America, you’re about to be hit by several more karaoke competitions at once.
