Freemantle Media has named ta producer for the Swedish edition of “Idol” to head the troubled Fox American version of the show.
On Sunday Fox dismissed its longtime production pair, Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick.
Their exit followed the departures of judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and original panelist Randy Jackson.
The fate of Keith Urban, the lone remaining member of the judging team, is uncertain.
The 12th season of “Idol” ended in May with a record low-rated finale. Its 13th season premieres in January.
