Russell Simmons Looking To Buy TV Network

When music mogul Russell Simmons tries his hand at something the results are generally very successful.

From starting Def Jam Records, to creating Phat Farm clothing, Simmons has demonstrated that he knows a lot about presenting the right idea at the right time.

With that being said, Uncle Rush has decided to buy a television network.

“I am going to buy a TV network,” he told the Wall Street Journal. “When mainstream networks say diversity, they mean segregation. ‘Let’s do some more black TV.’ Instead, there’s all these cultures that should be more integrated properly,” he explained. “Instead of giving Paris Hilton a show, for example, you could do one with Amber Rose. You’d be better off. One is hot, the other is not. Networks are a little slow in how mainstream culture is shifting. There’s a lack of integration in Hollywood, and I want to address that.”

Simmons added that he is working on the project with Hollywood producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, and that an announcement would be made soon.
