[ # ] Nigel Lythgoe wants to destroy Fame for TV
August 28th, 2012 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes

Nigel Lythgoe has been doing reality TV since he came to The States, and now he going to try doing scripted television by remaking Fame according to Playbill. The 1980 movie was brought back to the big screen in 2009 and it bombed, but yet MGM thinks the 1982 series has a better chance of making it under his lead. Something that has proven not to work not once but twice before. Back in 1997 Fame LA aired for one whole season and then in 2003 NBC tried a reality version of it that lasted just one summer.
What bothers me about Nigel at the helm is I bet the show would be cast with American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance rejects. Yes they can sing and dance, but can they act. A big part of scripted television is acting and I am not sure a lot those contestants can do it. Plus he has an ego as big as his teeth and I think he will ruin a perfectly good bad show by thinking he can do something better with it and he won’t be able to. His ideas for improving shows like Idol and SYTYCD have actually made me give them up instead of watching them more often. I used to love SYTYCD and now every time I see a commercial for it, I cringe.
