Oprah Winfrey TV Biopic In The OffingJuly 14th, 2010 - 8:34 pm ICT by Pen Men At Work
July 14, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Oprah Winfrey happens to be an illustrious chat show host, whose program has been consistently viewed by millions of Americans. She has also been provided the complimentary epithet of ‘the queen of chat shows’.
Some weeks back, Kitty Kelley had discharged an unofficial biography of Oprah Winfrey. Now, it appears that this unofficial biography may be on course for the television screens. Kelley has shrewdly joined forces with the experienced creator of TV movies, Larry A Thompson. Their partnership is meant to convert the unofficial book of Kelley into a made-for-TV ‘Oprah Winfrey Biopic’.
It has been divulged that Thompson has copious admiration for Kitty Kelley’s unofficial biography. He has mentioned that Kelley’s book will enact a pivotal role in the modeling of his film. It must be remembered that Oprah did not respond complimentarily to Kelley’s biography. Hence, it does not appear that she will react positively to the news about a film being prepared on her.
Thompson has uttered that the selection of a female to enact the character of Oprah will be a colossal challenge. They have resolved to organize auditions that will be accessible to recognized and unrecognized actresses. Kelley has mentioned that she is convinced that her made-for-TV biopic is going to attain triumph. The reason for her optimism is that the expert Thompson is going to be responsible for this film’s creation.
Thompson has mentioned that the film will probably be a two- or four-hour film. Thompson has declared that he has optioned it for six figures. This TV project is likely to be telecast in September 2011. That would be the time when Winfrey’s weekday chat show also winds up. Thompson has classified himself as an admirer of Winfrey and has admitted that he is presenting the TV project to certain networks. He rejected to specify their names. Thompson has generated TV biopics historically about Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, and Sonny and Cher.
A spokesperson for Winfrey’s Harpo Productions has rejected to react on this issue.
Analysts in the world of entertainment have stated that an unrecognized actress would definitely be able to procure immense famousness by enacting the character of Oprah in a biopic on her life. However, these analysts have also expressed their fear that this might signal death for the career of that actress. Kelley and Thompson have hitherto not managed to take into service the female protagonist. They have also not been able to find a network and a writer.
