Following the release of Donald Trump's recorded vulgar comments about women, some activists are calling for the release of outtakes from the GOP nominee's time on "The Apprentice."

Trump was on the NBC show for 11 seasons.

After he was recorded on an open mic bragging about sexually assaulting women to then-"Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush, some activists think there may be additional recordings of him displaying similar behavior.

The activists plan to hand deliver a letter to the show's executive producer, Mark Burnett, and MGM television asking them to release the video so the public can review it for possible inappropriate behavior by Trump.

"Release the tapes," Carolyn Fowler of the California Democratic Party Women's Caucus said.

MGM, which owns Burnett's production company, released a statement saying they would not release the footage - for legal, not political, reasons.

"Despite reports to the contrary, Mark Burnett does not have the ability nor the right to release footage or other material from The Apprentice," MGM and Burnett said in a joint statement.

"Various contractual and legal requirements also restrict MGM's ability to release such material. The recent claims that Mark Burnett has threatened anyone with litigation if they were to leak such material are completely and unequivocally false. To be clear, as previously reported in the press, which Mark Burnett has confirmed, he has consistently supported Democratic campaigns."

Attorney Gloria Allred said she's already been approached by women accusing Trump of inappropriate conduct.

"I will not say the number. I will just say that I am extremely busy," Allred said.
