Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” is being eyed for an adaptation into a television series, Variety has confirmed.
Endeavor Content has purchased the film and television rights to the book, which goes inside the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency. It largely portrays Trump as unprepared for the enormity of his office, and that he is unable to focus his attention on policy details. The book also includes quotes from former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who referred to the 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer as “treasonous.” Bannon eventually resigned his position at Breitbart News over the furor caused by his statements.
The book proved to be an immediate best-seller and was sold out at bookstores in several major cities the day it was released.
No studio is currently attached to the project. Wolff will serve as an executive producer on the project with former BBC executive Michael Jackson also producing. >>>See full article at Variety - TV News
