Barbara Walters in Talks for HBO Biopic

She met with cable channel last week to discuss documentary a la “Teddy: In His Own Words”

Barbara Walters is in talks with HBO to make a for-the-record movie about her life and career, perhaps as soon as next year.

The 80-year-old talk show host, who on Monday made her first appearance on "The View" since undergoing heart surgery in May, wants to get a film version of her best-selling memoir, "Audition," onto TV.
