Melbourne: Swimming legend Ian Thorpe is said to be filming a new self-produced TV show in an attempt to reignite his defunct small screen career.
The five-time Olympic gold medallist has confirmed that he was in talks for a lifestyle program when quizzed by Confidential over lunch at Leichhardt yesterday.
The show is apparently set inside his house and features a different guest coming over to cook dinner and have a chat each week.
"We may be doing something soon - I don``t know when," the Courier Mail quoted him as saying.
"I have a lot of ideas - it`s pretty clear in my head but just depends.
"It will be lifestyle-based," he added.
His latest project is said to have been independently produced and is not yet attached to any mainstream network.
A production source said the new show is well under way.
