Former media mogul turned inmate Conrad Black will add TV host to his resume in March.

Black's new talk show will be produced by Moses Znaimer's ZoomerMedia, the company announced Monday.

The show is titled The Zoomer: Television for Boomers with Zip and will talk about world issues from a Zoomer point of view, a press release says. It will be produced by Moses Znaimer and ZoomerMedia, which targets products at those aged 50 and older.

Each episode will feature Black interviewing some of the world's greats, the release says, and close with an editorial called Talk Black.

Denise Donlon, formerly of MuchMusic and Sony Music Canada, will be Black's co-host and will conduct a roundtable discussion.

The Zoomer is slated for 26 episodes on VisionTV in Canada, the Hollywood Reporter reports. The show is currently being shopped to U.S. networks.

Black was released from a U.S. prison last year after being convicted of fraud and obstruction of justice and is living in Toronto.
