American Idol online… ( + FremantleMedia [RTL Group/Bertelsmann])

After “Deal or No Deal,” “1 vs 100,” “Who Wants to be A Millionaire,” and “Big Brother” a company called now also has the license for “American Idol.” Extending the existing brand into online game space, is really just giving you a more-or-less interactive (someone say iTV?) version.

“The idea behind the game is to really re-create the experience of going before the ‘American Idol’ jury,” said Robert Norton, vp business development in the U.S. at “Players will create a personal avatar and dress them in costumes and then use the cursors on the keyboard to sing and dance to the music.” (source)

Quoting a whopping $250,000 to develop the game, it is apparently the most expensive “casual Web game ever made.” FremantleMedia (wholly owned by the RTL Group, which is 90% owned by Bertelsmann) seems excited.
