‘Tiger Woods’ biography to be turned into a scripted miniseries

May 22, 2019

Tiger Woods, the New York Times-bestselling biography on the 15-time major champion written by authors Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian, is now being turned into a scripted miniseries, according to Deadline.

The scripted miniseries based off of the biography is being developed by the production company Wheelhouse Entertainment. It’s reportedly the first project taken to market by Wheelhouse and Benedict, who struck the deal with the production company. Part of the deal will include Benedict and Wheelhouse putting together a variety of scripted and unscripted projects.

“As a rabid sports fan, I had seen Jeff’s byline and read much of his work, always impressed by his insights and access into some pretty rarefied worlds,” said Wheelhouse CEO Brent Montgomery. “But when I picked up Tiger Woods, I saw what a true force Jeff really is – and a compelling way to bring the Tiger Woods story to life as one of the most moving in sports history.”

Benedict and Keteyian spoke to more than 250 people for the biography, which was published last year. The announcement of the deal comes just one month after Woods captured his fifth Masters title.
