Spielberg joins Fox network for reality TV show
Director Steven Spielberg has joined with the Fox television network for his first reality show, an "American Idol"-like contest to find the nation's next great filmmaker, Fox said on Thursday.

Spielberg, the Oscar-winning director behind "Saving Private Ryan" and "Schindler's List," will develop the new Fox show, "On the Lot," with Mark Burnett, the producer of such TV reality hits as "Survivor" and "The Apprentice."

The upcoming series, slated to air sometime in the 2006-07 broadcast season, will pit a group of aspiring filmmakers in competition for a Hollywood development deal on the lot of DreamWorks, the studio Spielberg co-founded.
