Walters In Talks For Tv Biopic

Recovering U.S. newswoman BARBARA WALTERS is in talks to bring her life story to the small screen in a documentary about her 50-year career.
Walters, 80, is negotiating with TV executives at HBO to adapt her best-selling memoir, Audition, into a made-for-TV-movie, reports the New York Post.
Her representative Cindi Berger has confirmed there is "a lot of interest" to develop the biopic, but declined to discuss which networks had made serious offers.
