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.
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.
