It looks like NBC is trying very hard to get that exclusive interview with Casey Anthony so much so that an NBC producer is trying to land her a book deal in exchange for a free interview with NBC! Wow, do you think this is true?
According to TMZ,
The honchos at NBC — the C stands for crafty — think they figured out a way to snag an interview with Casey Anthony without paying a red cent, and make her a wealthy woman at the same time.
We’ve learned an NBC news producer has reached out to people in the literary world, trying to score a book deal for Anthony. The producer has contacted literary agents and others, telling them if he scored a book deal for Casey, she’d give the network a 1-hour, primetime special … portions of which would also run on “Today.”
The producer makes it clear — NBC couldn’t pay a cent for the interview. But he is gung-ho about the book deal, even representing that Casey wants up front money.
Jose Baez, Casey’s lawyer, tells TMZ … he has full knowledge of the producer’s efforts, but says, “I’m not involved in that process. I did not entice him to do it.”
Baez was quick to add, “Casey is not ready to do an interview.”
We tried multiple times to get a comment from NBC — so far, no luck.
No matter what people think about Casey the ratings would be huge!
