Jennifer LopezJennifer Lopez has her own talent competition series in the works, reports Entertainment Weekly. 'Que Viva' would see the star and her husband, Marc Anthony, scouring Latin America for undiscovered musical superstars.

There's no network set for the projects, but 'American Idol' producer Simon Fuller is on board. Of course, his involvement leads to the question of whether or not Lopez will continue as a judge on 'Idol' next season. She's only signed on for this year, but most reviews of her performance on the show have been positive.
