Los Angeles TV producer Scott Sternberg Productions have been quietly pitching an interview with Casey Anthony, who was acquitted in July of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony.
Sternberg is a veteran TV producer who is behind 'ID's On the Case With Paula Zahn' and 'Shatner's Raw Nerve' on Bio.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources say Sternberg is asking between $500,000 and $750,000 to deliver Anthony. But so far, multiple cable networks have declined.
Spokespeople for Discovery Communications' TLC and ID confirmed that the networks have passed on the project. A&E Networks, which includes Lifetime and A&E, also has passed, says a spokesperson.
HLN has not been approached, says a network spokesperson, who adds that the cable news network would not pay for an interview with Anthony. MSNBC has also not been pitched the project. But sources at the NBCUniversal-owned cable channel also say they would not pay for Anthony.
ABC News, CBS News and NBC News all have stated adamantly that they would not pay for an Anthony interview specifically.
While the interview would likely be a ratings hit, it is not likely to be a moneymaker since it would be difficult to get advertisers to support a program that featured Anthony.
