Already on The Early Show, CBS anchor Julie Chen is eyeing yet another day job. Chen, who is married to CBS Corp honcho Les Moonves, is slated as a panelist along with actress Sara Gilbert on a pilot for a View-type CBS daytime panel talk show, which will film in May. Tom Forman, the Extreme Makeover creator and now CEO of Relativity Real, will exec produce with Gersh-repped Gilbert. The pilot is among several, including reboots of classic game shows Pyramid and Password, which are in the running to replace departing CBS daytime drama As the Word Turns. The new talk-show pilot will discuss topical matters through the eyes of mothers. The search is on for two more regular panelists as well as contributors is underway. First mention of this pilot was in the NY Post.
