We haven't heard the name Casey Anthony in quite awhile and many may have hoped to never hear the name again.
But, now word is that NBC News is looking for a ratings pop and has met with Casey Anthony about doing something with the network.
Anthony, who in 2011 was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, was flown first class by NBC to New York last Thursday. She was accompanied by Don Wood, a veteran news producer who works for NBC in Florida and also writes and produces reality TV programming.
Anthony and Wood were photographed arriving at JFK and waiting for a limo into the city.
Sources confirmed to Page Six that Anthony then met with NBC News’ top booker, Matt Zimmerman , at the Peacock Network’s 30 Rock headquarters. Zimmerman is the senior booking producer for “Today,” but insiders say he oversees a booking unit that also works across all NBC News shows.
A rep for NBC News declined to comment, but an insider said, “News divisions meet with people in the news all the time — as of now, nothing is planned.”
Other sources say Anthony, who’s bankrupt and living in West Palm Beach, Fla., is seeking a big-bucks deal for her first sit-down since the acquittal.
