The Hollywood Reporter reports that the CNN anchor “is close to a deal” for a syndicated talk show.
Anderson is said to be in talks with Telepictures Productions and Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution for a program targeted to launch in fall 2011.
What can fans expect? The show is billed as a topical format that will cover everything from celebrities and pop culture to social issues, but would also show off Anderson’s skill with news stories.
No comment from Anderson at this point. Our thoughts on the idea?
UPDATE: It’s official. Anderson is branching out to daytime TV. The show will cover “social trends, entertainment and human interest topics” in an attempt to fill the void Oprah Winfrey will leave after her final season next year.
