CBS has assembled the cast of the pilot for its View-type daytime panel talk show, eyed as a potential replacement for departing daytime soap As the World Turns. Leah Remini is the latest to be cast in the pilot, joining fellow panelists Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Holly Robinson Peete and Sharon Osbourne. She is the third sitcom star on the panel, along with Gilbert and Robinson Peete. The panel talk show, which focuses on topical events through the eyes of moms, is executive produced by Tom Forman and Gilbert. It is among several, including reboots of classic game shows Pyramid and Password, which are in the running to replace As the Word Turns in September. Remini most recently starred in the ABC comedy pilot It Takes A Village this past development season.
