The show, tentatively titled Rock the Cradle, will feature a lineup of celeb spawn singing their way to stardom in an Idol-like format that will air on MTV. While a formal announcement about the show will be released next week, the show's participants have not been fully nailed down yet — although Art Garfunkel's 17-year-old son, James, is one of the potentials.AI's producing company, Fremantle, and MTV have quietly been working for months on the details.
