Is Star Jones Heading Back to Daytime Television?





Could Star Jones be making her way back to daytime? According to Deadline, the former co-host of ABC's The View is working on a new legal themed talk show.

Jones has allegedly already started filming segments for the venture, which would have her as one of five panelists. Reportedly, Debmar-Mercury and E.W. Scripps are in talks to team up on the syndicated project. Jones opened up to FishbowlNY about the project, stating:
 

I can’t say much, but I can tell you exclusively I shot the pilot on Sunday and it’s multi-host – the opportunity came to me when I was in the middle of a million things — and I’m more excited about this than I’ve been in long time. It’s right in my wheel house.

    I can confirm she is making her way back to daytime if the show gets picked up. Think THE DOCTORS but from a crime and legal angle. Star is on a panel with lawyers, cops, detectives, etc. that discuss crime and legal issues of interest to the at home audience. Based on the success of networks like Investigation Discovery there is obviously an apetite for this kind of content.

    Love how she threw in the “the opportunity came to me when I was in the middle of a million things…”

    We get it, Star. You are soooooooooooo busy. Your career’s not in the toilet AT ALL.

    When I was going around the dial last night, I happened by her on with that other pompous dunderhead, Piers Morgan, talking about the government shutdown (!), and I thought it would be great if she ended up co-hosting that show with Piers. That way, I could NOT watch both of them at the same time!

    Oh I know, it’s funny we can all read between the lines Star. Years later after being fired from The View you did the Apprentice show. And not much else.
