CBS is planning a four-hour mini-series based on a book due this fall, “Linda: The Life and Times of Linda McCartney,” reports Variety. The biography is by a longtime family friend, Danny Fields, and the TV movie will revolve around Linda’s 30-year relationship with Paul McCartney, starting in 1968 (as the Beatles headed toward a bitter breakup). The series will conclude with Linda’s death last year from breast cancer. During the four hours the film will also examine her early years as a single mother and rock photographer (who snapped such notables as Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan), as well as her later activism on behalf of animal rights and vegetarianism.
