Brian Dunkelman is being resurrected back to play host to American Idol. Well that is partly right, Brian will be back only on syndication. The new syndicated show will be call American Idol Rewind and contains old episode of the rating juggernaut plus will also have never before seen footage of the show.
Initially, it’s believed Rewind will look back at the singing competition’s inaugural 2002 season, in which Kelly Clarkson was crowned and Dunkelman was employed. Rare footage could include Clarkson’s audition and new interviews with past participants. Should the syndicated Idol prove itself a worthy progeny of its powerhouse parent, additional seasons presumably will be revisited.
Stay tune for the first Rewind on September 2006. Looks like Brian will be getting some cash to buy some value meal at McDonald’s.
