Singer makes second attempt at television career
John Mayer is set to shoot a variety show, according to media industry reports today.
The singer, who is currently dating actress Jennifer Aniston, will shoot a pilot for the CBS network, reports say .
According to CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler, the pilot could result in a series of specials or a full series for Mayer.
Mayer’s previous foray into television saw just one episode air. The ‘John Mayer Has a TV Show’ was shown on VH1 in 2004.
As previously reported, Ozzy Osbourne and family will launch their own variety show on Fox this year. The programme will reportedly be a throwback to popular 1970s-era variety shows such as ‘The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour’ and ‘Donny and Marie’, which focused on music while featuring various forms of entertainment.
