A writer and executive producer of television and films revealed on Wednesday that NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch, a former right-wing radio host, asked him if she could star in a comedy show about a “hot young mom who does far right radio.”

As Loesch was attending a CNN town hall on the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday, Geostorm writer Paul Guyot noted on Twitter that the one-time radio host had made the request but he turned her down.

At the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, Loesch told the crowd that she had accepted a job hosting a one-hour, commercial-free program on NRA TV.
