NBC turned Trump's "You're fired!" catchphrase on him after he made remarks about illegal Mexican immigrants being rapists and murderers during a political campaign last month.

Looking for a high-profile woman, who can command as much attention in the boardroom as on the red carpet, the executives believe that Amal fits the bill perfectly, reports dailystar.co.uk.

"We want Amal, although there are a couple of other prominent women in contention, we think she could be a perfect fit if her schedule can be made to dovetail with shooting requirements," said a source.

The idea of filming the show mainly in New York, where she is a regular lecturer as a visiting professor at Columbia Law School, appeals to Amal, according to friends of the couple.
