Scoop: Paula Abdul in talks to star in flash mob dancing series for NBC!

I. Kid. You. Not. I. Swear. For. Real. The. Deets…

Sources confirm that the project — which is being produced by the folks behind The Biggest Loser (but does not feature a weight loss component) — would find Abdul and dance God Kenny Ortega (High School Musical, This Is It, etc) choreographing mass dances in public locations.

Although a network rep declined to comment, a Peacock insider stresses that a deal is far from done. Loosely translated, Abdul could very well do to them what she did to ABC.

Thoughts? Was Abdul smart to pass on Star Search for this?
