Apple TV+ is in final negotiations for “Carrie & Me,” a new film adapted from “Carrie and Me: A Mother-Daughter Love Story,” Carol Burnett’s bestselling memoir about her daughter Carrie Hamilton, reports Deadline.
Tara Miele will write and direct the project, which will be produced by Apple Studios along with iconic entertainer Burnett, Emmy winner Tina Fey, Eric Gurian, Steven Rogers and Josh McLaughlin. Jeff Richmond will executive produce.
In the memoir, described as “a touching tribute to her eldest daughter,” Burnett tells the story of Hamilton, who won the hearts of everyone she met with her kindness, quirky humor and unconventional approach to life. After overcoming her painful and public teenage struggle with drug addiction in a time when personal troubles were kept private, Hamilton lived her adult life of sobriety to the fullest, achieving happiness and success as an actress, writer, musician and director before losing a hard-fought battle with cancer in 2002 at age 38.
