Abdul Reviving Star Search?

Former AMERICAN IDOL judge PAULA ABDUL is reportedly in talks to rival SIMON COWELL's hit talent shows by bringing back 1980s U.S. TV contest STAR SEARCH.
The show, which gave singers, dancers and comedians a chance at fame, first hit TV screens in 1983 and was hosted by the late Ed MCMahon. The series ran until 1995 and featured performances from future stars including Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears in the early 1990s.
The programme was later resurrected in 2003 following the success of American Idol - the revival ran for two years until it was cancelled.
But now Abdul, who quit Cowell's hit singing contest last year (09), is said to be in negotiations with TV bosses at America's ABC network to relaunch the show once again. The big budget remake will reportedly see the singer share hosting and judging duties, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The show is said to be slated for a summer 2010 launch.
