Months before it was meant to broadcast, Simon Cowell’s latest venture into televised talent competition programming, Ultimate DJ, has been shut down, according to Variety. The proposed TV show was to feature promising up-and-comers in the electronic dance music circuits.
As disclosed by Variety, Ultimate DJ was supposed to premiere in early 2016 to support Yahoo’s move toward original TV programming. Chief marketing officer Kathy Savitt was reported as having said that Ultimate DJ would have worked “very much like the World Cup of EDM -- country against country, DJ against DJ, fanbase against fanbase. And with all the voting happening on Tumblr, it’s yet another example of the growing convergence and synergies we are finding between the two platforms.”
