Reality TV guru Mark Burnett reportedly has talked with Martha Stewart about remaking her U.S. TV series once she finishes her prison term.

I'm very interested in reinventing her show, Burnett said in Monday's New York Daily News about Martha Stewart Living, the popular TV show pulled when Stewart got into legal trouble.

The fundamental core will have to remain the same. It has to be about Martha helping people -- cooking, lifestyles, that kind of thing. There's a lot she has to get through in the short run, so I look forward to working with her in 2005. Right now, she needs space, Burnett said, alluding to Stewart's five-month prison sentence for her conspiracy and obstruction of justice conviction stemming from an insider trading investigation.

Last week Stewart said she is ready to begin her prison term rather than wait for an appeal.

Burnett created Survivor, The Apprentice and The Restaurant. His latest reality series, The Contender, debuts in November on NBC.
