Get ready to hear Julie Chen's point of view.

According to the New York Post, the Chenbot will be filming a pilot for a new 'View'-style daytime talk show whose panel of experts will have a slight twist: They will all be moms discussing things from a mom point of view. The series, which has yet to receive a title, could potentially fill the time slot being vacated this summer by the cancellation of the long-running soap opera 'As the World Turns.'Get ready to hear Julie Chen's point of view.

According to the New York Post, the Chenbot will be filming a pilot for a new 'View'-style daytime talk show whose panel of experts will have a slight twist: They will all be moms discussing things from a mom point of view. The series, which has yet to receive a title, could potentially fill the time slot being vacated this summer by the cancellation of the long-running soap opera 'As the World Turns.'

But fear not, Chen fans: Even if the show gets picked up by the network, the versatile host will continue to appear on both 'The Early Show' and 'Big Brother.' And while other details are still up in the air, the identity of one of her co-panelists is already known and it's a familiar one to television fans: Sara Gilbert, who starred for 10 years as Darlene Conner-Healy on 'Roseanne.'

Just who will fill the remaining two seats is as yet unknown, though actress Lisa Rinna and 'Real Housewives of New York City' star Bethenny Frankel are both said to be in the running. The unifying theme will all these women is that they all have young children (Chen is still on maternity leave from the September birth of her son, Charlie, whose father happens to be CBS President and CEO Leslie Moonves) and thus will be able to discuss current events in a way that resonates with their presumed target audience, fellow moms.

The pilot is scheduled to film some time next month.
