Former CBS and PBS news anchor Charlie Rose, whose PBS series (“Charlie Rose”) was cancelled after he was accused of sexual misconduct last year, could be hosting a new series interviewing other high-profile men who faced “MeToo” accusations.

Tina Brown, magazine luminary and women’s advocate, told a Q&A crowd at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s Women’s Luncheon this week that she was approached to work on the potential series but turned down the job, according to Page Six.

“These guys are already planning their comebacks,” Brown told the crowd.

A source close to Brown told Page Six, “Tina said she’d just been e-mailed about co-hosting a new show with Charlie Rose, in which they’d interview Louis C.K. [and] Matt Lauer,” both of whom were accused of sexual misconduct last year.

Brown confirmed to Page Six that she was approached to produce the series rather than co-host it, and she told the outlet she couldn’t recall who was behind it.

Rose was accused of sexual misconduct by several women in November. The accusations included making unwanted sexual advances toward his employees, groping, explicit phone calls, and displays of nudity.

Representatives for Charlie Rose did not respond to a request for comment from Page Six and have not yet responded to a further request for comment from Business Insider.
