Charlie Rose Is Working on a # MeToo Redemption TV Show

The disgraced anchor plans to interview other men brought down by the #MeToo movement.

Disgraced CBS anchor Charlie Rose is planning to star in a show where he’ll interview other high-profile men who have lost their careers because of sexual misconduct, revealed through the #MeToo movement that swept the nation this fall. The move was revealed by editor, writer and women’s advocate Tina Brown, who confirmed to Page Six that she was approached to produce a #MeToo “atonement series.”

Brown passed on the project. She first mentioned the proposed project during a Q&A session this week at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s Women’s Luncheon. A source 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., Matt Lauer and others caught up in the #MeToo sexual harassment scandals.” But Brown told the group she didn’t want any part in it and said, “These guys are already planning their comebacks!”

That night, at the Time 100 Gala, Brown confirmed to Page Six that she was approached about the project and said she was asked to produce it. She told Page Six she does not remember who was behind it.
