‘America’s Most Wanted’ On CNN?

The creator and host of “America’s Most Wanted” says that he has a meeting with CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker in a few weeks. John Walsh made the comments to TV Guide‘s Michael Schneider:

“Maybe Jeff will say there’s room on this channel, especially with CNN’s international reach,” he says. “They ask me constantly to go on Anderson Cooper, Erin Burnett and Piers Morgan. Maybe I can come up with some kind of hybrid show that might serve those purposes… I hope that maybe with the blessing of Lifetime that I might be able to do something.”

As we noted this morning, Lifetime recently canceled “America’s Most Wanted,” though it is working with Walsh on another series.

Under Zucker’s leadership, CNN has been expanding the number of programs it acquires from outside production companies. While “AMW” may not be a perfect fit for the channel, a similar crime show may fit the bill for the weekend hours, where HLN and MSNBC have found success with the genre.
