He says the show for the ABC network will be like an "upmarket Spinal Tap".

"It's not about me, but about everybody we've encountered over the past 30 years," Sir Elton told Variety.

"We've met every star and seen every misbehaviour. And it's about the people around the star, who have to put up with them", informs BBC News.

According to the ABC-CBN News, daily Variety said John's longtime business manager Bob Halley came up with the basic concept about three years ago, and his boss warmed to the idea. Songwriter Bruce Roberts, producer Michael Edelstein and "Sex and the City" screenwriter Cindy Chupack eventually entered the mix.
