Tiger Woods, the TV show, coming soon...


A new Tiger Woods TV show is being developed by author Jeff Benedict in partnership with Wheelhouse Entertainment, which will draw on content from the 2018 New York Times bestseller "Tiger Woods," co-authored with Armen Keteyian.

Tiger Woods - from the pain and peril to the greatest sporting comeback of all time


Benedict, who is also currently working on a biography of NBA legend Lebron James, has written a total of 15 books of non-fiction.

“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 rarified worlds," said Wheelhouse CEO Brent Montgomery.

"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."

Woods moved back inside the world's top 10 following his miraculous Masters victory at Augusta last month, but then missed the cut in his next appearance at the US PGA Championship last week.

The news release said: "'Tiger Woods' will be the first project taken to market by Wheelhouse and Benedict as a scripted limited series."

No more details are yet available. 

Woods this season teamed up with GOLFTV to offer fans insight into his world and his preparations for tournaments.

Plans have also been set for a new head-to-head series, of which details will be revealed soon.
