New York (AP) - The Bravo network says it's bringing former "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi  back to TV in a series of her own.

"Going Platinum" will be a song-writing competition that pits contestants against one another as they live together, all vying for a $100,000 grand prize.

DioGuardi will be head judge of the 10-episode series. Singer-songwriter Jewel will serve as host.

"Going Platinum" is scheduled to premiere next year, Bravo announced Tuesday.

DioGuardi, who has written hit songs for such artists as Carrie Underwood and Pink, was a judge on "American Idol" the past two seasons.
