Bessey080610.jpgCBS’ upcoming daytime panel show “The Talk” has lined up an executive producer. The program is bringing on Brad Bessey, currently co-executive producer of “Entertainment Tonight” to helm the show.

Bessey had been with “ET” for 15 years.

“The Talk” features Julie Chen and a panel of moms talking about issues of the day. Not surprisingly it has drawn many comparisons to the ABC daytime talker “The View.”
