Lyric Jeans, Inc. has entered into a licensing agreement with FremantleMedia, co-producer and licensor for American Idol, to create an American Idol branded apparel line.

The initial Lyric Jeans-American Idol collection will be aimed at the juniors market and expand into other areas, including lines for girls and children.

The company expects the line to hit stores in conjunction with the next season of American Idol (February) and is currently in discussions with mass market distributors.
