Casey Anthony Lawyer Negotiates ($$$) w/ Networks

7/22/2011 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jose Baez -- Casey Anthony's lawyer -- is holed up at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, holding court with all of the major networks -- to determine who will score the first interview with Casey -- and big bucks are involved.

Casey Anthony

Sources tell TMZ ... NBC, ABC and CBS are all competing for the first interview.  Sources connected with the negotiations tell TMZ there is a "big price tag" for the interview.  We're told the networks -- which say they don't pay for interviews -- are offering to license photos and other material and pay big bucks ... that's S.O.P. in the network game.

We're told NBC looks like the frontrunner so far, but ABC is in the game.  We're told CBS "is a distant third."  We're told NBC is paying for Baez' hotel room.

Baez spent part of the night Thursday in the Mandarin Oriental bar with famed lawyer Mark Geragos (right) -- who knows a thing or two about high-profile cases.  We're told Geragos gave Baez pointers on negotiating the deal.

I mean.. unless she is going to tell everyone what happen to her kid... lost in grocery store, drowned, what ever.. the real truth is.. its just a waste of money to the fool that pays her to lie more. The girl has not said the truth yet.

Networks are such freaking hypocrites! Shame on them.

Networks will pay the big money because they know people WILL watch. If you watch, you're part of the problem!

I'll watch, but I expect it to be a lot of nothing said.

Whatever station it becomes... I will boycott!!! That woman has nothing to say that I want to hear.

Abe Abe

I can't wait to watch Casey's interview. Whatever network gets her, I'll be watching! x

Bean Reel Bean Reel

Here's what I'd give you for that interview: $0.00 It's not worth a plugged nickel to hear from that woman. Boo and bad karma to whatever Network forks over so much a dime. You can count me o-u-t out!

Why would you want to interview someone when you know it will be all lies. Kind of sounds like a waste of time, and money.

Her Imperial and Royal Majesty 6 minutes ago
If she went on T.V. and admitted to killing her daughter, she couldn´t be prosecuted, could she? It would violate the "doctrine" prohibiting double jeopardy, wouldn´t it?
-----
Your Majesty - NOPE there's nothing anyone can do if she admits. Double Jeopardy should be done away with. She could show up at your house of worship and stand at the pulpit and admit to killing Caylee and NO ONE can touch her
