NEWS: Tori Spelling ABC Daytime Talk Show, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ford

ABC finds man for Tori Spelling daytime talk show
Tapped to co-host and share the desk with Spelling is Jeff Lewis, according to people close to the project. Lewis is best known from the Bravo reality show FLIPPING OUT. In the test pilot show with Spelling last week, the two had good chemistry. The show, which is still in the development stage, wants to be a talk show version of WILL & GRACE.

The program is being developed by ABC Media Productions, an arm that creates shows not only for ABC and its parent Disney, but also other non-Disney outlets as well. In other words, if ABC passes on it, that doesn't mean the show couldn't resurface elsewhere.

ABC would either have to find room in its daytime lineup, syndicate the show or sell it to cable.
