Tate Taylor will write and executive produce the adaptation, with John Norris executive producing with Taylor under their Wyolah Entertainment banner. Craig Anderson and Sharon Hall also executive produce. Sony Pictures Television is the studio.
“The Prince of Tides” film starred Nick Nolte as Wingo and Barbara Streisand as Lowenstein. Streisand also directed the film, with Conroy and Becky Johnston co-writing the screenplay. It went on to become a great success, grossing over $75 million at the US box office against a reported budget of $30 million. It was nominated for seven Academy Awards as well, including those for best picture, best actor for Nolte, and best adapted screenplay.
