The search for Paula Abdul's next TV gig may be over.

According to's Ausiello Files, the former 'American Idol' judge is in talks to join ABC's upcoming 'Star Search' reboot, which is currently eyeing a summer launch date. Sources claim that Abdul's role would involve some variation of hosting and judging, although no official word has been made.

Abdul's name has been attached to a number of projects since she abruptly left 'Idol' last summer, including ABC's 'Dancing With the Stars.' Recently, there have been rumblings that she may join Simon Cowell when 'The X Factor' heads to Fox in fall 2011, but, again, that remains a rumor.
