Stay tuned… Netflix announced last week that it has optioned “Madoff Talks: Uncovering the Untold Story Behind the Most Notorious Ponzi Scheme in History,” a book written by Old Greenwich resident Jim Campbell, for a documentary series. RadicalMedia and Joe Berlinger (“Paradise Lost,” and “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich”) are behind the series, which will explore the rise and fall of the notorious financier who died in prison while serving a 150-year prison sentence for bilking investors out of billions of dollars. Campbell, who spent a decade talking to Bernie Madoff in prison, is among those interviewed for the docuseries. Campbell was also interviewed by CBS correspondent Jim Axelrod on “CBS Sunday Morning” in April.
