The reality show follows Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 children.

The letter was sent in January to the parent company of LTC describing Ms. Hunt’s professional relationship with a 56-year-old musician who performs in Branson, Mo., and providing details of an affair with an unspecified female cast member, according to an affidavit in U.S. District Court in Davenport.

Ms. Hunt’s arrest was first reported Thursday by the Quad-City Times in Davenport.

In the letter, Ms. Hunt allegedly said the Duggars “claim to be so Christian so they keep popping out more babies to keep their ratings up.”

In the affidavit, an FBI undercover agent called Ms. Hunt, saying he represented Discovery and was following up on her letter. She said she was a photographer and was in possession of damaging pictures. Ms. Hunt then sent an email with three pictures attached to the undercover agent, according to the affidavit.

“I have more buried in a box at my parent’s home, but it will take some time to go through the boxes to find them. I’m attaching what I currently have on my computer. I hope these are enough,” the email said.

Ms. Hunt allegedly said she’s willing to “settle for $10,000,” and has no reason to hurt the cast member “except that’s she’s on a reality show and pretends to be a right-wing Christian and she’s sleeping with a 56-year-old man.”

There is no telephone listing for Ms. Hunt. A call to her attorney, Jack Dusthimer, wasn’t returned.

Univision, Disney work on English channel for Latinos

Univision and Disney are in talks to create a 24-hour news channel for Latinos in English, two sources close to the negotiations said Monday.

Both sources declined to go on the record because they were not authorized to speak on the matter.

The goal would be to begin broadcasting before the November presidential election. According to the Associated Press, that would give the network plenty of time to provide political coverage geared toward Hispanics, who are considered influential swing voters in states such as Florida, New Mexico and Colorado.

Univision is the nation’s largest Spanish-language media company, and it has long prided itself on its Spanish-language content. In recent years, officials quietly have acknowledged that in order to maintain and expand viewership, they also need to provide content to second- and third-generation Latinos who speak English as their first language.

Univision officials and ABC News spokesman Jeffrey W. Schneider declined to comment Monday.

The move comes in response to the 2010 census, which showed U.S. born Latinos made up nearly 60 percent of the growth in the nation’s Hispanic population over the last decade.
