Barbara Walters is eyeing a spinoff of "The View" geared at men, the New York Daily News' Gatecrasher column reports.
The newspaper reports that Walters and partner Bill Geddie are "quietly developing a 'unisex' spinoff of 'The View' that will attempt to inject a male perspective into the topics of the day."
Walters and Geddie are reportedly eyeing Bryant Gumbel to moderate the show; other potential show hosts include "Ugly Betty" actor Alec Mapa, former Fox News host E.D. Hill, and ex-BET News anchor Jacque Reid.
Gumbel, who appeared recently on "The View," hosts "Real Sports" on HBO and is the former co-host of the "Today" show. He announced late last year that he had surgery to remove a malignant tumor from his lung.
"We don't ever comment on anything we may or may not be developing," an ABC spokeswoman told the Daily News.
If the show moves forward, it will not be the first spinoff inspired by "The View."
CBS will debut a panel show geared at working moms called "The Talk" this fall; it will feature Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini and Marissa Jaret Winokur.
