Magna Founder Could Be Next Reality Star

Magna founder Frank Stronach may be studying for a new kind of auto part: a television part in a reality show, according to a newspaper report.
Stronach, founder of Magna which is one of the largest suppliers or auto parts to automakers, is involved with the creators of such reality shows as For Love or Money and the fat-loss series The Biggest Loser, though they would not confirm whether he would be the centrepiece of a new show, as real-estate mogul Donald Trump is in The Apprentice, according to the Globe and Mail.
3 Ball Productions is not releasing details out of fear that the show will be copied, according to executive producer Todd Nelson.
Todd Searer, another executive producer and head of development at California-based 3 Ball, told the paper that the project is in the early stages of development with Stronach, "a man who we respect very much."
Magna currently has auto parts sales estimated at $20 billion U.S. a year. In addition, Magna Entertainment Corp., owns some of North America’s premier horse tracks, including Santa Anita Park, just up the freeway from Hollywood.
