Guerra talking daytime strip

Actress-comedian-author Jackie Guerra has been meeting with top-level producers around town discussing a daytime talk show, sources said. Guerra would host the project, being discussed as a possible syndicated show, sources said. Latino talent has become a big part of syndication as multiple talk show pilots this past development season featured Latina hosts, and courts shows including "The People's Court," "Judge Maria Lopez," "Judge Alex" and "Cristina's Court" feature Latino judges. Guerra's reps at Rebel Entertainment Partners and Brillstein-Grey are tight-lipped about the discussions and declined comment, but Guerra is no stranger to daytime as she has made a number of appearances on "The Tyra Banks Show" to discuss topics including her recent weight loss; she also was developing a daytime talk show with Dick Clark Prods. in the late 1990s. Guerra is the author of books including "Under Construction: How I've Gained and Lost Millions of Dollars and Hundreds of Pounds" and hosts a show on Air America called "Workin' It." As an actress, her credits include PBS' drama series "American Family," WB Network's comedy series "First Time Out" and the feature film "Selena." (Kimberly Nordyke)
