Jada Pinkett Smith is launching a new TV talent show with American Idol star Simon Cowell.

The pair will set out on a hunt for the world’s best DJs.

Speaking about the new venture, Matrix Reloaded star Pinkett Smith says, “This show will comb the world to find a new breed of talent.”

And reality show veteran Cowell, who has been developing the series for over a year with his production team at SYCO Entertainment, admits he’s thrilled to work with the multi-talented beauty: “As soon as I met Jada and Miguel (her associate)… I knew they would be our ideal partners… DJs are the new rock stars. It feels like the right time to make this show.”

The program has yet to be given a name or premiere date, but will air in both the U.S. and the U.K.
