Simon Cowell wants to turn sex memoir into a TV show

Los Angeles - Simon Cowell wants to make a TV show about sex parties. 

The 56-year-old music mogul's company Syco has reportedly bought the rights to Emma Sayle's 2014 raunchy memoir Behind the Mask - which details her life organising hook ups across the globe for Killing Kittens - in a bid to create a cheeky series for television screens in the US.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Someone brought the book to his attention and he immediately saw pound signs."

Simon's entertainment firm - which is co-owned by Sony - is keen to make a show, which will be even sexier than the hot-under-the-collar 2015 movie Fifty Shades of Grey.

The insider added: "Fifty Shades of Grey made hundreds of millions when it was turned into a film and Behind The Mask has all the right ingredients to be a huge hit. It's incredibly raunchy in parts, so it would have to be aimed at the right audience, but it could be turned into a brilliant TV series."

And it's thought writer Tim Prager, who's written for Silent Witness, will act as a consulting producer on the upcoming show, while Emma - who held sex parties in the UK's first sharia hotel in London - will be the co-executive producer.

Meanwhile, if the raunchy television show goes ahead, it will be the first time Syco - which is known for creating TV contests like the 'X Factor' and 'Britain's Got Talent' - has branched out into the drama series avenue.
