Former SPICE GIRL, Mel B is desperate to revive a two-year-old TV project in a bid to get her flagging career back on track.

The WANNABE star recently enjoyed success in Broadway musical RENT, but she was overlooked for the film adaptation, and she is now running out of options.

The 29-year-old originally tried to secure a deal for her documentary exploring Brazil in 2003, but production companies were put off by her huge wage demands after she fronted British television channel ITV's talent show THIS IS MY MOMENT.

A source says, "She's back in touch with CHOCOLATE PRODUCTIONS to try and get them interested in the Brazil idea again. But something tells me she's reduced her asking price this time.

"Melanie claims she's not interested in getting back into the limelight - but it appears that's not the case. She's desperate to film this documentary about Brazil because she reckons she's got real presenting talents. The TV companies don't agree though."
