Col TV, Anderson land ‘Memory’

Pianist's memoir to be adapted for telefilm

Columbia TriStar TV and Craig Anderson Prods. have acquired rights to Linda Katherine Cutting’s HarperCollins memoir “Memory Slips,” which is being adapted as a telefilm for CBS.

“Memory Slips” chronicles the struggles of the Boston Pops piano soloist to overcome memories of childhood sexual abuse by her father, which caused her to experience “memory slips” while performing. Columbia and Craig Anderson Prods. acquired the rights for mid-six figures, and Ara Watson and Sam Blackwell are adapting the project.

Columbia and Craig Anderson have also optioned the rights to Glenn Kleir’s “The Last Day,” which is being developed as a miniseries at NBC. Joe Cacaci (“The Betty Broderick Story”) will pen the teleplay.

“The Last Day” is about a strangely gifted woman whose appearance on the even of the millennium sparks people to believe she’s the Messiah. A TV reporter investigates whether that’s true, or whether she’s the product of a scientific experiment gone wrong.
