EX-GOOD Morning America co-hosts Amy Robach and TJ Holmes have made new career moves since being ousted from their gigs on the show.
The pair are reportedly in talks of creating a “reality show,” among other ideas, while looking for their next big project.

“They’re pitching themselves as a duo,” the insider said of the couple.
“They’ve pitched a reality show, docuseries, and daytime talk show, all of which they know will be popular and people will watch.
“Amy has said whatever they do, this is about real love and they’re in it together.”
Meanwhile, just last month, Amy, 50, and TJ, 45, weren’t having much success in getting other networks onboard with their ideas.
Networks are apparently “steering clear” of the media personalities amid the former co-host’s cheating scandal, according to the New York Post.
CBS’ syndicate operation, CBS Media Ventures, turned down a “proposal” for a talk show from the controversial couple, per an insider close to Amy and TJ.
CNN also turned down a pitch from the duo’s talent agency, CAA, when they reached out to the network on behalf of the ex-ABC personalities in February.
In another attempt, Amy and TJ reached out to Fox Entertainment and Fox Television stations, meeting with station execs to discuss having their own syndicated program.
A source told the outlet that the interactions between the two and Fox were “general meetings” on “various opportunities” that weren’t “limited” to just a “talk show.”
RETURNING TO TV?
Even though Amy and TJ strive to get back to fans on-air, a TV expert recently slammed the possibility of the pair having their own talk show.
“If they did a talk show, what would they talk about? What’s their expertise — infidelity?” the unnamed expert told the New York Post.
“They’d take anything. I think they’d host a game show at this point.”
Despite a few networks turning them away, Amy and TJ are still sending their pitch around to people who could help materialize it into a reality.
According to insiders, Amy and TJ’s show pitch details are still “vague” and malleable.
One source told the New York Post that TJ and Amy told execs they could “be whatever you want us to be.”
“One thing’s for sure…they can’t do news,” the insider told the publication.
Amy and TJ’s love affair became public in November after photos obtained by the Daily Mail showed them looking cozy together at a New York City bar.
They were also caught spending time together at each other’s apartments in Manhattan.
And on November 11, the lovebirds headed to upstate New York for a weekend getaway at a cottage.
At the time, TJ and Amy were married to their respective spouses, Marilee Fiebig and Andrew Shue, since 2010, although a source told the outlet they were in the process of separating from their partners.
Their romance became a controversial topic in the media, resulting in the network suspending them from their posts on GMA3.
ABC later released a statement Amy and TJ would no longer be on the show.
“After several productive conversations with Amy Robach and TJ Holmes, about different options, we all agreed it’s best for everyone that they move on from ABC News,” they said.
However, the decision has not slowed Amy and TJ’s relationship, as they have been spotted on many PDA-filled outings since.
Last month, photos captured the pair sharing a passionate kiss during a New York City shopping trip.
Days earlier, Amy and TJ ran in the NYC half-marathon, which they had been training for together leading up to the event.
