TV producers scrambling to book Adele


After Adele stated she would be interested in producing a documentary similar to Beyoncé Knowles’, numerous TV producers are reportedly pitching multimillion-dollar programme ideas to her.

The singer came out of hiding for Awards Season after going on a short hiatus from the entertainment industry to care for her newborn son.

Adele picked up a number of trophies this year including an Oscar for her Skyfall song.

After the Academy Awards Sunday night Adele said: “Maybe I’ll do a HBO special like Beyoncé [Knowles] did.”

Apparently executives and producers at major American TV networks like Fox and CNN have been preparing pitches frantically for the star following her statement.

Within 24 hours, numerous multimillion-dollar deals were on the table.

“As soon as Adele said she could be interested in a show, TV producers were compiling suggestions,” a source told British newspaper The Mirror.

The 24-year-old singer welcomed her first child with partner Simon Konecki in October.

Executives believe scoring a documentary with notoriously private Adele would be incredibly profitable.

“This will be a major coup for anyone to get. Adele hasn’t done any major interviews for a long time,” the insider explained.

"She has never spoken in depth about her relationship with partner Simon Konecki or the birth of her son Angelo.”
