Darlene Love - Darlene Love Memoir Picked Up As Oprah Winfrey's First Tv Movie

Singer Darlene Love is set to make history after learning a planned adaptation of her memoir will be the first scripted Tv movie made for Oprah Winfrey's U.S. cable network.

Love will co-produce My Name is Love: The Darlene Love Story alongside Winfrey and Morgan Neville.

Announcing the news on Monday (10Feb14), Oprah Winfrey Network (Own) president Sheri Salata says, "The fantastic life journey of music great Darlene Love is the perfect choice for our first original scripted movie.

"There are a handful of stories brought to the screen of daring American women who walked through fire and back to make their dreams come true and Darlene is one of the heroes on that list. From her first hit song to her darkest days cleaning houses in Beverly Hills to make ends meet, to the triumphant comeback that made rock and roll history, Darlene is a true living legend who worked with many of the greatest talents in music from Elvis Presley and Tom Jones to Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin and Bruce Springsteen."
