HBO announces doc on Jeff Benedict's co-authored Tiger Woods bio
"Tiger," a two-part documentary on the life of golfer Tiger Woods, is in production from HBO Sports and will debut on Dec. 13 and Dec. 20 on HBO. It will also be available for streaming on HBO Max.
In a press release, the network says the series is based on the New York Times bestselling book "Tiger" co-authored by Waterford's Jeff Benedict along with Armen Keteyian. The two writers are listed among the executive producers on the documentary project.
It will be a busy fall for Benedict. In addition to the Woods documentary, Benedict's latest book, "The Dynasty," an inside look at the New England Patriots in the 21st century, will be published Sept. 20 by Avid Reader Press, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.
Benedict wrote "The Dynasty" in his new office inside the Garde Arts Center. He's also the author of several other books including "Little Pink House" — about New London's Suzette Kelo and the Fort Trumbull eminent domain case that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court — and "Without Reservation," a behind-the-scenes look at the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe and Foxwoods Resort Casino.
