Child killer Joel Steinberg has a cable-TV job waiting for him if he is released on parole next summer, his civil attorney said Monday.

Lawyer Darnay Hoffman, who is general counsel for the show, said he has arranged for Steinberg to work on "New York Confidential," a program planned for a leased-access Time Warner cable channel.

Steinberg, 62, is serving 8 to 25 years for fatally striking his illegally adopted daughter, 6-year-old Lisa, in his Greenwich Village apartment in November 1987.

Steinberg, a lawyer at the time, had taken Lisa from her biological mother, an unwed Long Island teen, when Lisa was an infant supposedly to arrange an adoption. He instead took her to the home he shared with Hedda Nussbaum, who was also abused.

Steinberg, who was convicted of manslaughter in January 1989, will have served two-thirds of his sentence in June.

Based on Steinberg's conviction, Lisa's biological mother, Michelle Launders, 40, won a ruling that he was liable for her daughter's death.

A spokesman for the state Division of Parole could not be reached. A state Department of Correction Services Web site cites June 30 as Steinberg's conditional release date.

The cable show, which is to air next week, is to feature Hoffman's wife, Sydney Biddle Barrows, also known as the Mayflower Madam for running a 1980s prostitution ring.
