Oprah biopic to be based on Kitty Kelley book

By Sapa-AP  | Jul 14, 2010 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

Oprah Winfrey’s quarter-century run on daytime TV may be accompanied by a TV film dramatizing her life.

Veteran producer Larry A. Thompson said the planned two- or four-hour Winfrey film will be based on Kitty Kelley’s tell-all biography. Thompson says he has optioned it for six figures.

The TV project is expected to air in September 2011, which would  coincide with the end of Winfrey’s weekday talk show.

Thompson has produced TV biopics about Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, and Sonny and Cher.

He calls himself “a huge fan” of Winfrey.

An unknown actress will likely be cast to play Winfrey.
