Tiger Woods drama teed up in US

Producers in the US have teamed up to develop a limited drama series based on Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian’s biography of Tiger Woods.

Tiger Woods

Entertainment 360, the television studio joint venture between Management 360 and Media Rights Capital (MRC), will work with Wheelhouse Entertainment’s Spoke Studios on the show.

Veteran screenwriter and producer Rodney Barnes has been tapped to pen the script. Initial development of the project was announced by Wheelhouse last year.

Barnes’ recent credits include HBO’s upcoming Untitled Lakers Project (executive produced by Adam McKay), Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga, Starz drama American Gods, and Hulu and Marvel’s Runaways. He is represented by Artists First and Fox Rothschild LLP.

The Woods series is a product of Wheelhouse Entertainment’s partnership with Benedict, forged in 2019 to develop TV and film projects based on the author’s books and other IP, including the Tiger Woods biography, which Benedict and Keteyian share.

Guymon Casady and Evan Silverberg will executive produce for Entertainment 360, with Brent Montgomery and Joe Weinstock exec producing for Spoke Studios. Benedict and Keteyian also serve as exec producers.
