The former American Idol judge is in talks for a new version of the 80s classic It seems a former American Idol judge could be searching for some new stars on ABC. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paula Abdul is in talks to join the new ABC version of Star Search.

It was said that Abdul would likely be a judge on the series, although details on her involvement weren't known at this time. While ABC refused to comment, it was said that the network had been looking to make a deal with Abdul since her American Idol departure, and a gig on the hit series Dancing With the Stars was also discussed.

We also reported in January that Abdul could possibly join Simon Cowell on his new reality show X Factor.
