CBS Plans Patty Hearst Mini-Series

CBS is developing a currently untitled scripted limited series about the kidnapping of Patty Hearst.

Hearst, granddaughter of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst, was abducted from her Berkeley apartment by terrorist group the Symbionese Liberation Army in 1974.

Hearst soon sympathised with her captors, making propaganda announcements for them and taking part in illegal activities. A 19-month FBI and police search finally led to her capture and trial.

Jonathan Tolins will pen and executive produce alongside Jonathan Koch, Steve Michaels, Rocky Lang and Joan Harrison.
