Prufrock gets Tilberis book

Ryan's prod'n co. buys for Alphabet pic

NEW YORK — Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Liz Tilberis’ bout with ovarian cancer will soon be the stuff of a TV movie to air on the Alphabet net, according to a deal announced Thursday by Polygram Television and Meg Ryan’s Prufrock Pictures.

The telepic will be based on Tilberis’ high-profile book, “No Time To Die” (just out from Little, Brown), which chronicles the author’s rise in the fashion world and her ongoing battle with cancer, with what is described as “plenty of humor and dogged honesty.”

The freshly inked deal will be the first production resulting from Prufrock’s exclusive two-year development agreement with Polygram TV. The vidpic is not yet attached to any director or actors, according to Polygram’s senior veepee of TV movies, Karen Danaher-Dorr.

“‘No Time To Die’ addresses important issues concerning women’s reproductive health … Liz is an extraordinary woman who has conducted her life with nothing less that amazing grace,” said Ryan.

Tilberis said she’s “delighted” with the deal and commented that it’s always been her goal to educate and raise awareness of the disease.
