Telepictures developing Osbourne series


Sharon Osbourne, the matriarch of the strange clan that has become an open
book on the MTV series The Osbournes, is developing a syndicated daytime
talk show for Warner Bros. unit Telepictures Productions, sources say.

The show would debut in fall 2003.

Execs at the studio weren't commenting.

Osbourne, who showed a multifaceted 'everywoman' style in an interview with
ABC's Barbara Walters Wednesday night, joins several other would-be talk hosts,
including Ellen DeGeneres (also for Telepictures), who are lining up to take the
slot being vacated by Oprah Winfrey after 2005.
