Charlie Rose - whose PBS show was canceled following allegations of sexual abuse - is expected to star in a series where he interviews other men who face sexual harassment scandals, Page Six reported.

The show would feature Rose alongside men such as comedian Louis C.K. and former NBC anchor Matt Lauer, who both had sexual harassment allegations lodged against them last year.

According to Page Six, the show was pitched to writer and women's rights advocate Tina Brown as a "Netflix show," but a source close to the streaming service told Page Six that no one at Netflix had heard of the show.

Brown, who was approached to produce Rose's show, turned down the job.

The show is being seen by some as a comeback attempt for some of the men who were toppled by the #MeToo movement.

The movement began last year following numerous sexual harassment allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein's scandal triggered a deluge of accusations and reports against prominent men in politics and media.
