Rosie negotiating with NBC

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes




Gossip Cop has learned that Rosie O’Donnell is negotiating with NBC to have her new talk show aired on the Peacock network’s owned and operated stations.

The information comes from the same reliable source who told us exclusively in March that O’Donnell had signed a production deal for a new daytime program.

The show, as we previously reported, is looking to launch in the fall of 2011, and will be produced by Robert F. Kennedy‘s documentary filmmaking daughter, Rory Kennedy, along with TV veterans Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin.

But there’s one sticking point, says our impeccable insider.

According to our source, “NBC wants an out if she implodes like she did on ‘The View.'” 

Reps for O’Donnell and NBC would not comment.
