Pepsi had a chance to sponsor Cowell and American Idol, but rival Coca-Cola got the rights to what became a phenomenon and TV's highest rated series. Fox had reportedly been in talks with both Coke and Pepsi about being the exclusive soft-drink sponsor of X Factor.
The sponsorship includes a multi-platform off-air marketing partnership; weekly in-show integrations and placements; and an immersive content experience online.
The X Factor, based on the hit show in the U.K., is expected to have its debut in the U.S. this fall.
It is produced by Syco Television and FremantleMedia North America.
