Executives face a serious dilemma because although they desperately want the interview for ratings they fear a major backlash from advertisers and viewers if they pay for it.

Major shows like Today and Good Morning America and other cable channels are scrambling to lock Simpson down for his first post prison talk but they are equally worried about it too.

It is also extremely unlikely that the fallen former NFL star and his team will agree to any interview without a sizeable paycheck.

At present there is a stand-off but understands that several talks are currently on-going over Simpson's first interview once he leaves prison.

Potential suitors are even hesitant to pay for any possible flights and accommodation for the famous felon for fear of protests from endorsers and the public.

One compromise could be for an international outlet to come and do the interview as they would not suffer as much backlash for snagging him.

Proposed payment to Simpson for interviews could be claimed by Ron Goldman's family They were awarded $8.5 million in a judgement against him back in 1997.
