$750K for Casey Anthony interview?

How much would Casey Anthony’s first post-trial interview be worth?

According to the Hollywood Reporter, one producer is trying to get $750,000 for it, but several networks have reportedly already turned him down.

THR reports that Los Angeles producer Scott Sternberg has been pitching an interview with Anthony, and is seeking a $500,000 to $750,000 licensing fee. TLC, Lifetime and A&E are among the networks that confirmed to THR that they rejected the proposal.

But Sternberg says in a statement to CNN the report is false: “Scott Sternberg Productions has not teamed up with Casey Anthony. As a producer of entertainment content we constantly have discussions about a variety of subjects with a number of networks. But there simply is no deal or offers out."

Sternberg has not offered the program to HLN, according to a network spokesperson who also said HLN would not be willing to pay for an interview with Anthony at all.

The THR article cites an unnamed cable industry source who pointed out that the interview might draw big ratings for the network that agrees to air it, but they would likely have trouble finding advertisers willing to be associated with the program. They could also face a costly backlash from outraged viewers for putting Anthony on the air.

Anthony remains in hiding somewhere in Florida while she completes a one-year probation sentence for check fraud.
