O'Donnell, who turns 48 today, has worked with Robertson and Carlin before.

Robertson, as president of Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution, shepherded the sales of the Telepictures-produced "Rosie O'Donnell Show," according to the Reporter.

The O'Donnell show ran for six years, ending in 2002, and won multiple Emmy Awards.

O'Donnell also was a host on ABC's "The View" in 2006 and '07.
