Academy-award winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney and his prodco, Jigsaw Productions, are developing a docuseries based on the newly released biography of Tiger Woods by Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian.
The docuseries will show the authors’ three years of work, unveiling intimate and unexpected details of Woods’ past. Like the book, titled Tiger Woods, the series will chronicle Woods’ early years, as well as his rise as a mixed-race golfer, nearly two decades of dominating national titles, and his struggle with the demands of media attention and family.
New York Times bestseller Benedict and Emmy Award-winning investigative journalist Keteyian will executive produce the project alongside Gibney.
Gibney’s work includes the triple Emmy Award-winning film Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief; the Academy Award-nominated film Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room and the Oscar-winning film Taxi to the Dark Side, which exposed torture used by the U.S. military on a base in Afghanistan.
The filmmaker also recently produced Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind, which premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, as well as Magnolia Pictures’ Wall Street documentary, The China Hustle, which opened in theaters on March 30.
Jigsaw Productions’ current slate of series includes Dirty Money, a six-part series on Netflix that examines corporate scandals; and Death Row Stories, a CNN series executive produced by Gibney and Robert Redford, which looks at capital punishment in the U.S.
