Ryan Seacrest Forging Ahead With His Music Show


As previously mentioned here, Ryan Seacrest is in early talks with NBC to develop a music show at some point down the road.

However, at this time, he doesn’t plan to host the new show nor does he want to compete with American Idol. He is under a $15 million a year contract with American Idol until 2012, which means that his Idol contract will expire next season.

This lucrative, multi-faceted contract also bars him from appearing on any other broadcast network until 2012, which makes absolute sense.

Billboard.Com and the new York Post had plenty to say about Ryan.

He has his own productiom company, Ryan Seacrest Productions, which has developed current shows on E!, such as four from the Kardashian franchise, “The Dance Scene”), ABC (“Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution”) and TLC (upcoming “I Kid,” hosted by Brad Garrett).

However, his new musical show is 1 of 20 still under development. I am very interested to see where Ryan takes this show. I am huge fan and great admirer of his strong work ethic. He Is relentless and loaded with ambition. I wish him the very best in his new endeavors as a producer.

Are you happy for Ryan? Do you think he will maintain as high a level of success behind the camera as in front of the camera? Can American Idol survive all of these new reality- based competitions?

    Ryan reminds me so much of Dick Clark… very similar work ethnic. He’s young, good looking, and seems very happy in his personal life. I just hope he allows enough time for his personal life which may include a wife and children some day. He’s just doing too many things. I wish him the best in all his future endeavors!
