Actress-comedian-author Jackie Guerra has been meeting with top-level producers around town discussing a daytime talk show, sources said. Guerra would host the project, being discussed as a possible syndicated show, sources said.

Latino talent has become a big part of syndication, as multiple talk-show pilots this past development season featured Latina hosts, and court shows including The People's Court, Judge Maria Lopez, Judge Alex, and Cristina's Court feature Latino judges.

Guerra is no stranger to daytime, having made a number of appearances on The Tyra Banks Show to discuss topics including her recent weight loss. Guerra is the author of books including Under Construction: How I've Gained and Lost Millions of Dollars and Hundreds of Pounds, and she hosts a show on Air America called Workin' It. As an actress, her credits include PBS' drama series American Family and the feature film Selena.

Guerra's representatives declined comment.
