October 5, 2004 --
FILM star Catherine Zeta-Jones has got a new TV show — the pretrial hearings of her stalker.
A judge ruled yesterday that the hearings for Dawnette Knight, 33, who is accused of stalking Zeta-Jones, can be televised, except when proceedings involve witness tesimony.
Court TV plans to cover the trial and the pretrial hearings, but a network official yesterday said it was too early to offer details.
Attorneys for Zeta-Jones have filed a 104-page motion asking Judge David Mintz to bar cameras from the courtroom for the actual trial, which is scheduled to start Nov. 10.
Knight is charged with one count of stalking and 24 counts of making criminal threats for allegedly sending threatening and violent letters to actor Michael Douglas, Zeta-Jones' husband.
