Britney Spears isn’t the only pop star looking to get in on the talk show wars. Jennifer Lopez is also looking into the prospect, with the hopes of bringing her sister along for the ride, according to a source close to the singer/actress.

Lopez is contemplating developing and producing a syndicated talk show, which could start airing as soon as fall 2004. Lopez would not participate on a full-time basis, but would appear semi-regularly to lend her name to the show.

While Spears would be the executive producer of her proposed program and would occasionally appear via videotaped segments, Lopez plans to appear live. And though Spears has yet to select a host, Lopez’s show would showcase her sister, Lynda, who’s already a New York radio personality on WNEW-FM and a correspondent on E!.

Universal Domestic Television is reportedly considering picking up the show to add to its lineup of such programs as “Jerry Springer,” “Crossing Over,” “Maury” and “Blind Date,” but a spokesperson for the company had no comment.
