Simon Cowell and Will Smith set to team up for a DJ competition show

This is a very unlikely combo. Simon Cowell, along with Will and Jada Pinkett Smith will come together to produce a DJ competition show on TV.

The show, which will have American and British versions in true Cowell fashion, hasn’t landed at a network yet, but Cowell says it will “soon” –  which probably means he will try to get this new show launched this summer or in the fall.

“DJ’s are the new rock stars,” Cowell said in a statement to

This new musical competition show, produced by Cowell’s Syco Productions, along with the Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment are behind the show with Sony Pictures TV.

If this new joint venture with Cowell and the Smiths ever get off of the ground, there’s one DJ that should automatically have a job, Smith’s old DJ’ing partner Jeffrey Townes, known in the DJ’ing world as DJ Jazzy Jeff.

Any other famous DJ’s you hope to be involved with the show?
