Casey Anthony is shopping her first interview as a television special, but so far several cable networks have passed on the offer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Anthony is working with Scott Sternberg Productions and asking between $500,000 and $750,000 for the interview, described as a "no-holds-barred interview," the story says.
So far, Discovery’s TLC and ID have passed, as has A&E Networks, the piece adds. Part of the problem is that Anthony, who was acquitted in July of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, became a target of public outrage after the trial, the story notes.
The story reports: “Anthony’s pariah status has already spurred news divisions to publicly disavow the common and age-old practice of licensing personal photos and home video from interview subjects as a fig leaf to paying outright for interviews. And ABC News, CBS News and NBC News all have stated adamantly that they would not pay for an Anthony interview specifically.”
Additionally, the story notes that even though an Anthony interview would generate interest, it could be difficult to get advertisers to sponsor a program built around Anthony.
