There’s no doubt that Simon Fuller has had great success in is life–bringing us Pop/American Idol and the Spice Girls–but does he really have the magic touch to help Google?
The UK’s Guardian newspaper reports…
Executives from the £229bn internet giant have been in discussions with Fuller, who invented Pop Idol, the world’s most successful TV franchise, for about a year. Although details of the deal are a closely guarded secret, sources close to Fuller say it could revolutionise the way entertainment and music are distributed.
‘It’s a big idea on a global scale,’ he said. ‘It will change television in much the way iTunes changed the way music is disseminated.’
