*MTV Networks is huddling with George Clooney to produce a telethon for Haitian earthquake relief, the network announced.

At press time Thursday, MTV spokesman Mark Jafar had no further details on other actors involved, but the event would likely air on Jan. 22 across all MTV Networks – which include VH1, Comedy Central and CMT — as well as on ABC, NBC, HBO and CNN.

Clooney’s rep Stan Rosenfield tells the Associated Press that the actor is in the process of helping organize the telethon.

Thousands are feared dead after the massive earthquake, and the Caribbean island nation desperately needs aid.
