CNN to Put Michael Jackson's Attorney in Prime Time

Jeff Zucker's latest brainstorm is coming next week. 

CNN is gearing up to test a new half-hour program centered on legal issues during its primetime lineup, according to a person familiar with the situation.

“Making The Case” is slated to air between 10:30 p.m. and 11 p.m., this person said, and will be anchored by Mark Geragos, a California criminal-defense attorney who has represented Michael Jackson, Chris Brown and politician Gary Condit, among others and Sunny Hostin, a former assistant U.S. attorney who has contributed to CNN in the past.

The show is expected to air one day a week for five weeks, according to the person familiar with the matter.

Hostin tweeted news of the program earlier Tuesday, but had the time details wrong.

If the host of the show can't get the time right, how do they expect viewers to find it.

Look for this show to run a couple of weeks, before the plug is pulled.
