Possibly buoyed by last month’s win at the Masters, a new scripted miniseries about Tiger Woods is being developed.

Based on Jeff Benedict’s book about the 43-year-old golfer, the project is being developed by Brent Montgomery’s Wheelhouse Entertainment. Co-authored with 60 Minutes correspondent Armen Keteyian, Tiger Woods became a New York Times bestseller after it was published last year.

In addition to the miniseries based on Woods, Benedict and Wheelhouse will develop more film and television projects based on Benedict’s other work.

“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, 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,” Montgomery said. “IP is becoming more important than ever before, and to partner with a writer of Jeff’s caliber – someone who nails perfectly the experience and emotion behind epic people and their stories – is a huge win for Wheelhouse. It’s an enormously rich pool from which to create exciting projects in and around sports, and other high-intensity environments. We are ecstatic to be in the Jeff Benedict business.”
