We may soon have another way to show our love for The Prince of Tides and our beloved author, Pat Conroy, our “Prince of Words”, if a multipart series based on this novel makes it out into the world!
Yesterday the news leaked out regarding a multipart series currently being developed by Apple, based on Pat Conroy’s internationally bestselling novel THE PRINCE OF TIDES. It is still in the early stages, but a great team of Conroy lovers are now involved in making this series happen so we have high hopes that something good will come of this.
Sharon Hall of “Mom deGuerre Productions” has been chasing this story for many years, hoping to see a remake of the novel into film. She is Executive Producer of the hit Amazon series “The Expanse,” as well as the Amazon series “Utopia” from writer Gillian Flynn. Hall was able to bring on Tate Taylor to write the script, (whose credits include “The Help” and “Girl on the Train”), and also to executive produce the adaptation, along with John Norris who will executive produce with him under their Wyolah Entertainment banner. Sony producer Craig Anderson has long been involved in this project that, once made, will be released on The Apple Network by TriStar, a division of Sony.
We promise to let you know as more news becomes available on this and other possible Conroy film projects. And more news will surely come. Conroy’s ability to write characters we love in stories with multiple plot lines makes his novels perfect not only for feature films but also for today’s popular multipart productions.
Hang onto your seat! This is just the beginning.

I would love to see a series based on The Prince of Tides! The movie was visually stunning and well acted but unfortunately focused too much on the therapist played by Barbra Streisand (who directed the movie) and Tom. The brother was such an integral part of the book yet was hardly in the movie. There is so much in the book that it could easily be 2 seasons.

all conroy novels i find painfully beautiful like life itself he has immortalised so many from his memory i too have known special souls what a good job he did they live

Prince of Tides is my favorite book of all time, and Pat Conroy my favorite author. While I’m not usually a fan of movies from books, the movie version was wonderful. As is necessary, some important parts were left out of the film that made me hope that viewers had read the book to understand, for instance, the complexities of his feelings about his father. It scares me a tad to hear about a series – although I would be thrilled to watch one. It certainly will miss his beautiful prose – he could describe something more beautifully than any camera could see, or than any other author I’ve read.

Our book club just voted to read THE PRINCE OF TIDES for our January meeting. I brought out my autographed copy from 1986 to read and because of all my Beaufort memories, I am loving my time lost in reading one of my favorite books.
Evelyn Krieger says
This is one of my favorite books! I read it with a book club when it first came out. Now I want to read it all over again/
Mihai Radulescu says
Evelyn you are one of the few who shared your thoughts here. This is greatly appreciated. I believe I saw another message from you… I’ll go look. Maybe I shall involve Pat’s sister in this page. She loves to see everything about Pat and she enjoys it…
