Fourteen year-old The X Factor finalist Rachel Crow, whose shocking elimination created one of the biggest controversies on the Fox series’ first season, has signed an overall talent deal with Nickelodeon. Under the pact, the network is developing a comedy series for Crow to star in, which will shoot a pilot. Additionally, she will recur on Nickelodeon’s upcoming short-form series Fred: The Show opposite star Lucas Cruikshank, playing Starr, an imaginative, confident but awkward teenager. “Rachel is an original,” said Nickelodeon’s EVP Paula Kaplan. “She’s funny, genuine and has raw talent and a passion for performing. On the music side, Columbia Records/Syco has exercised its option to sign her. “This girl has it,” X Factor and Syco’s Simon Cowell said. “We saw her potential at the first audition and Nickelodeon and Columbia are the right homes for her.”
