Thesp agrees in principle to adaptation of memoir
PARIS — A Gallic TV producer is bidding to bring Brigitte Bardot’s life to the small screen in a three-part miniseries.
The reclusive actress-turned-animal rights campaigner, who recently celebrated her 72nd birthday, has agreed in principle to the adaptation of her memoir “Initials BB,” a spokesman for Jean-Louis Remilleux’s Societe Europeene de Production said Wednesday. But formal discussions over acquiring the rights are still ongoing.
Company is talking about the project to Italian and German broadcasters as well as more than one French TV channel, although script and cast are not yet in place.
Remilleux, whose three-year-old company is better known for making docus, got to know Bardot when he produced “SOS Animals,” a TV show she used to present on TF1.
