[via press release from ABC]

ABC, HARPO FILMS AND MITCH ALBOM REUNITE FOR THE TELEVISION EVENT MOTION PICTURE �OPRAH WINFREY PRESENTS: MITCH ALBOM�S FOR ONE MORE DAY�

The ABC Television Network, Harpo Films and Mitch Albom will re-team for the two-hour television event motion picture �Oprah Winfrey Presents: Mitch Albom�s For One More Day,� based on Albom�s book, �For One More Day.� The Hyperion book debuted at #1 on The New York Times bestsellers list and has spent nine weeks in that position to date. With 4 million copies in print, it was named both the bestselling hardcover novel and bestselling new book of 2006.

Harpo Films will produce the film under its �Oprah Winfrey Presents� banner for ABC. Principal photography is scheduled for July; the program will air in December 2007. Oprah Winfrey and Kate Forte are executive producers. Mitch Albom is writing the teleplay and will also serve as an executive producer. Lloyd Kramer (�Mitch Albom�s The Five People You Meet in Heaven�) will direct.

The project tells the story of a broken-down, former baseball player who has collapsed into alcoholism and despair. He returns one night to his small hometown with plans to take his life. At the final moment, he is magically granted one more day with his departed mother, who illuminates the secrets of both their lives and shows him a way to redemption.

Their previous collaboration, �Tuesdays with Morrie,� yielded four Emmy wins, including for Outstanding Made-For-Television Movie and Outstanding Lead Actor In A Mini-Series or Movie.

�Oprah Winfrey and Kate Forte did a wonderful job with the movie of �Tuesdays with Morrie,� and it is an honor to be working with them again,� said Albom. �They tell beautiful stories with their films -- and I�ve witnessed Lloyd�s excellent work up close -- so I know �For One More Day� is in very good hands.�

This is the 7th telefilm on ABC for the �Oprah Winfrey Presents� franchise. The most recent outing, �Their Eyes Were Watching God,� starring Halle Berry, was the most-watched telefilm on any network since1999, with almost 25 million viewers.
