American Idol Looks To MTV For New Producers
American Idol is ready to fight for the return of their fan base and top ratings and that shows now more than ever with the addition of MTV Music Award Producers to the team.
The Wrap has reported that Jesse Ignjatovic and Evan Prager are close to joining Pers Blankens as replacements for Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick.
An individual with knowledge of the negotiations told TheWrap that producing pair Jesse Ignjatovic and Evan Prager are close to signing on to the music competition as the producers for 19 Entertainment.
Under their production company Den of Thieves, Ignjatovic and Prager are well versed in creating big televised music events.
No strangers to reboots, the duo took over production of the MTV Movie Awards last year, edging out “The Voice” producer Mark Burnett. They have also produced MTV’s Video Music Awards, VH1′s “Divas” concert and the CMT Music Awards. — The Wrap
