‘SILENT’ MINI FOR SCRIPPS

Scripps Howard Prods. of Santa Monica has pacted to produce a miniseries based on the bestselling Michael Palmer novel “Silent Treatment” to air on CBS in 1997.

Wesley Bishop has been commissioned to write the teleplay adaptation of the novel, a character-driven medical thriller about a doctor who is framed for the murder of his wife after becoming embroiled in a sinister conspiracy.

“Silent Treatment” debuted on the New York Times Bestseller List in hardcover in 1995, and returned to the list after being reissued in paperback earlier this year. Author Palmer is, like Michael Crichton, a licensed M.D. who turned to writing novels, with seven books now in print. He continues to practice medicine.

Palmer’s previous novel “Extreme Measures” was adapted for the big screen, with Gene Hackman and Hugh Grant playing the leads.
