Col TriStar TV may make latenight Salley

John Salley, the former NBA star left at the altar this year by Disney’s syndie arm, is in discussions for a development deal with Columbia TriStar Television Distribution.

Salley was set to bow as host of a latenight talker from Buena Vista Television this summer, but BVT abandoned the project in March when Keenen Ivory Wayans threw his hat into the latenight ring. CTTD, meanwhile, is getting ready to do battle with BVT’s Wayans strip with its own latenight entry, “Vibe,” later this summer, but Sony TV insiders stress that the studio’s interest in Salley is unrelated to “Vibe.”
