Simon Cowell branches out into a new comedy show with NBC
Simon Cowell is best known for his role in reality tv shows, whether it be as a judge or executive producer, but now Simon is going in another direction with his production company Syco. According to Variety he is going to be an executive producer of an NBC comedy titled “A&R”, alongside Scott Bernstein, Peter Samson and the writer of the show Josh Leib.
It will be focused on what Simon knows best, the music industry. The storyline follows “a young, hip music label, along with its young, hip boss, is thrown into disarray when the owner brings back a hard-partying, middle-aged “mastodon” from the industry’s past to help guide them into the future.”
