Ashanti Signs Reality TV Deal
Ashanti has teamed up with the producers of Ugly Betty and The Office to create a new reality TV contest. The singer/actress has just signed a deal with the brains behind Reveille Productions to produce and host her own version of American Idol. Details of the show are being kept tightly under wraps, but Ashanti’s manager mother Tina Douglas tells WENN, “It’s an unscripted television show that is definitely music related. We’ll be revealing more in the coming weeks. She has her own record label, called Written Entertainment, and the show is going to revolve around her label… It’s going to be really big.”
Ashanti recently joined a studio session in Los Angeles that included hip hop’s top producer Dr Dre and his rejoined rapper, Game. Although she didn’t specifically say what the three were up to or had planned, Ashanti did post a photo of them in the studio together.
