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!

Cindy Cindy

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!

That woman doesn't deserve a cent. I'm ashamed of today's society, because I know that it will be viewed by many people, but I will definitely not be one of them.

What would be the purpose of an interview? She obviously will be reiterating her pack of lies. I think the only interview worth watching would be if George was present during the interview so she would have to look him in the eye when she tells her story.

Jose Biaz and his team, are having Casey Marie Anthony sent to "REHAB". (What a joke ...the psychiatrist will need rehab after dealing with her). Then she will come out in public to do interviews ..here's the legal loophole catch.....Biaz and his team will set up a corporation /a "charitable" corporation, and the millions of dollars for the "TRUTHFUL" interview (what a joke), will go to the "CHARITABLE" corporation and then Jose Biaz and a little while later.... Casey Marie Anthony will receive a salary for "running the "Charitable" corporation....and guess what a real charity will get a small donation from this "corporation" for about $5000 ( or some such amount), and the millions will go to Jose Biaz and Casey Marie Anthony. I hope the IRS burns them and good!!!! Tax fraud , fraud over the airways , fairure to pay taxes, setting up a fraudulent corporation for illicit gain and tax evasion. That should net 60 years each in the slammer for the whole crew including Casey Marie Anthony.
Did you see that "legal team" drinking, whooping it up, and dancing on Caylee's grave, after their not guilty verdict in that restaurant? Wasn't that disgusting, to say the least?

Re: the Casey Anthony halloween mask that sold on ebay for $999,000.00? It will be interesting to see if the network that gets the first interview happens to have a mask. What better way to hide the fact monies were paid and hide the money from people suing her! There's supposedly 8 more.
