'Woods' telepic on path to CBS

CBS has greenlighted Pictures of Hollis Woods, a Hallmark Hall of Fame telefilm to star Academy Award winner Sissy Spacek, nominee Alfre Woodard and James Tupper.

Based on Patricia Reilly Giff's book, Woods centers on 12-year-old Hollis Woods (Jodelle Ferland) who, after being abandoned as a baby, has bounced around the foster-care system until she meets a quirky retired art teacher Josie (Spacek) who understands her and gives her unconditional love. However, Josie's difficulty remembering things gets progressively worse, and Hollis becomes the caregiver.

Woodard will play the girl's more than patient social worker. Tupper will play a husband and father of Hollis' previous foster family who wanted to adopt her until tragedy struck.

Emmy winner Ann Peacock (A Lesson Before Dying) adapted the book to the small screen. Tony Bill (Flyboys) is directing the film, which is in production in Victoria, B.C.

Brent Shields (The Valley of Light) is executive producing. Dan Paulson (Full Court Miracle) is producing.

ABC 'Makeover' repeat tops ho-hum Sunday

A night of repeats on ABC made for a ho-hum Sunday night overall in primetime.

CBS drew a respectable crowd of viewers with its well-received Hallmark Hall of Fame production The Valley of Light, a World War II-era drama starring Chris Klein as a returning soldier falls in love with a widow played by Gretchen Mol, which brought in an average of 14.8 million viewers and 2.9 rating/8 share in adults 18-49 from 9-11 p.m., according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research.

With no more football on NBC's Sunday program grid, ABC's 8 p.m. repeat of "Extreme Makeover: Home Improvement" (15.1 million, 4.3/11) prevailed as the most-watched program of the night. Makeover also tied Fox's 9 p.m. edition of Family Guy (8.7 million, 4.3/10) as the highest adults 18-49 score of the night. NBC had a slow start to the night at 7 p.m. with the first hour of "Grease: You're the One that I Want" (6.5 million, 2.0/6), but picked up the pace at 8 p.m.
