Simon Cowell is expanding his competition show empire with a hunt for the new DJ Superstar.

The X Factor judge is working with Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's production company Overbrook Entertainment to find the best new DJ.

The show will be a live international reality show to hunt out the finest talent from around the globe.

"We've been working on this show for over a year and we wanted to partner with the right people," Simon said in a statement.

He added that as soon as he spoke with Jada and her producing partner Miguel Melendez, he knew he had found the right team.

"DJs are the new rock stars," Simon explained on why he is venturing into this arena. "It feels like the right time to make the show."

Simon has been part of some of the biggest shows on television including American Idol, The X Factor, and Britain's Got Talent.

Jada also added her excitement about the new show and said she was thrilled about the project.

"This show will comb the world to find a new breed of talent," she proclaimed.
