Kara DioGuardiFormer 'American Idol' judge Kara DioGuardi is back in the game with her own reality TV series, 'Going Platinum.' 'Platinum' will be a songwriting competition that pits contestants (who will live together) against one another, as they vie for a $100,000 grand prize.

"Hit songs are the backbone of the music industry, and as a publisher, nothing excites me more than finding new songwriting talent," DioGuardi told PEOPLE. "I am happy to be a part of a show that helps up-and-coming songwriters pursue their dreams, while giving the public a look into the creative process."
