UPI News Service, 02/02/2009
Miley Cyrus, Eva Longoria Parker and Jay Leno are among those who have agreed to appear on "The View" when the chat show goes to Los Angeles in March.
Sally Field, Calista Flockhart, Jimmy Kimmel, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are also scheduled to be interviewed on the New York-originated series when it is broadcast for the first time from Disney Legends Plaza on The Walt Disney Studios lot March 9-13.
"We are so glad to bring the show to Los Angeles for a week," Brian Frons, president of daytime for the Disney-ABC Television Group, said in a statement Monday. "The ladies will bring their special perspective and great energy to the many things that make the city great, from Disney and ABC to stars and glamor, to landmarks and special guests."
Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd are the co-hosts of the daily talk show.
"For everyone who hasn't figured this out yet, Disney is 'The View's' parent company," said Bill Geddie, executive producer of "The View." "Spending five days on The Walt Disney Studios lot affords us countless ways to impress the bosses. In exchange we have agreed to keep the mouse jokes to a minimum and allow Sherri Shepherd to be used as a theme park character."
