Film planned on McVeigh book

Timothy McVeigh's bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building will be made into a miniseries based on a book by two Buffalo reporters, according to CBS executives.

The network has purchased the option on the book, American Terrorist: Timothy McVeigh & the Oklahoma City Bombing, written by Buffalo News reporters Lou Michel and Dan Herbeck.

The reporters interviewed McVeigh for more than 75 hours at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind., where he was executed last week for killing 168 people in the April 19, 1995, explosion.

CBS' rendition of the event will focus more on the way Oklahoma City has coped with the bombing, than on McVeigh or his motives, filmmaker Gerry Abrams, who will produce the series, said.

Joining CCB

Allison Radcliffe, former president of Hartman Communications, has been named vice president of account services for CCB Creative Marketing in Tulsa.

Melani Hamilton is the new director of public relations for CCB. Kendra Thompson will serve as account executive and Chris Monteith will be an account coordinator. Hamilton, Thompson and Monteith also were with Hartman Communications before joining CCB.
