Interest Develops to Do TV Movie About Barbara Walters


Barbara Walters


The anchor woman's representative confirms that there's a lot of interest to pick up her autobiography but says no network has officially said yes.

Recovering U.S. newswoman Barbara Walters is in talks to bring her life story to the small screen in a documentary about her 50-year career. Walters, 80, is negotiating with TV executives at HBO to adapt her best-selling memoir, "Audition", into a made-for-TV-movie, reports the New York Post.

Her representative Cindi Berger has confirmed there is "a lot of interest" to develop the biopic, but declined to discuss which networks had made serious offers. Walters, who underwent heart surgery to replace a faulty valve in May, returned to her hit ABC network show "The View" on Monday, July 12, appearing via video link to assure fans she is "fully recovered" from the procedure. She is expected to make a full return to the program in September.

Network executives at HBO and ABC declined to comment on the report as WENN went to press.
