Oscar winner Jamie Foxx is set to use his fame to resurrect the careers of fallen rock stars in a new reality TV show.

The singer/actor is currently in talks with several US TV networks over the idea, which he hopes will come into fruition later this year (06).

He tells the New York Daily News, "It's kind of like a reality show. It's rebuild the rock star. We take a person, who we all know, who may have fallen off his or her game. We rebuild them back up and show them perform their hits."
