P Diddy continues his empire of reality shows as MTV approved a Diddy backed show called "StarMaker" that will start in January. The new show will feature a group of aspiring artists picked by Diddy, who will compete against each other for a chance to obtain stardom while they live together…. Isn't that called "Making The Band" … or "American Idol" …. or about seventy other shows on tv? Either way, Emmy award winning Mark Burnett will produce the show, who has done hits like Survivor, The Apprentice and Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader (even though he stold that idea from Howard Stern).
Diddy says “It’s a privilege to partner with Mark Burnett on my latest television venture,” as he thinks Burnett is “one of the industry’s best.” Burnett thinks “We've created a platform that will allow new and emerging artists a chance to showcase their talents to some of the industry’s best."
