Los Angeles: Jennifer Lopez is planning to return to her roots by launching a talent show for Latin America.

The `American Idol` judge, who has been a big hit with the fans of the talent show, is keen to start a new music series to search for untapped talent in Latin America, reported Entertainment Weekly.

The `Maid in Manhattan` star will team up with `American Idol` creator Simon Fuller for the project, which is tentatively titled as `Que Viva`.

The show will see the 41-year-old star along with her singer husband Marc Anthony hunting for new acts in Latin America.

Lopez, who currently is in the judging panel along with `Aerosmith` frontman Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson on `American Idol`, is unsure of whether she would renew her show`s contract.

"I don`t know if I will do another season. I`m taking it day by day at the moment, and we`ll see what happens," said Lopez.

The project is reportedly still in the early stages of development as the creators are yet to find a network home.
