Reality producer, radio personality and FOX's American Idol host, Ryan Seacrest is talking with talent agency CAA and entertainment company AEG about the possibility of jointly launching a new cable network. The proposed channel would focus on music, pop culture and lifestyle and is in very early development stages. Seacrest would serve as a partner in the enterprise and not as the face of the network though it would have its own brand. AEG would bring its global concert and live venue ties to the programming table while Seacrest would offer his own entertainment industry contacts and experience as a reality show producer. All three partners in the enterprise are in talks with various companies regarding distribution. Reports about the venture say Seacrest would continue his work on E! and the new channel would not be a competitor to E! Comcast, parent company of E! is not involved in the endeavor and to date has not mentioned any plans to carry the possible new channel.
