ABC Developing Series Based on Streisand Film

Sep 16, 2010  •  Post A Comment

A bestseller that became a hit movie starring Barbra Streisand is being turned into an ABC drama series, Deadline.com reports.

The movie, which also starred Nick Nolte, is “The Prince of Tides,” based on the novel written by Pat Conroy. The program would encompass more of the backstory from the novel, centering on the Wingo family, in particular the three children–Tom, Savannah and Luke–in the low country of South Carolina.

Conroy will be involved as a consultant, but Bob Brush and Mel Harris are penning the script for Sony TV and will executive produce with Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum and Mitch Hurwitz.


  1. Absolutely great novel and the movie turned out good. Can’t wait for the series. Conroy should be more than a consultant. He is a terrific writer.
    Thanks ABC!

  2. Very good movie of Barbra Streisand.

  3. What procedures are used in this site do?
