Donald Trump White House Book Fire & Fury Becoming a TV Show

Donald Trump White House Book Fire & Fury Becoming a TV Show

Author Michael Wolff, takes the reader on a white knuckle journey through the series of debacles that have come to characterise Trump's first year as President.

Endeavour Content confirmed on Wednesday that it had acquired the rights to make a TV series of the book by journalist Michael Wolff.

Wolff will be the executive producer of the series.

Leaked excerpts from it sparked a war of words between President Trump and his former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, over Bannon's comments in the book.

Taking to Twitter earlier this month, the President called Wolff a loser who made up stories to sell his "boring and untruthful book".

Trump has claimed Wolff had "zero access" to him or the White House. The dizzying account has proved a sensation since its release on January 5, debuting at number one on the New York Times best-seller list, shipping 700,000 copies in its first week. According to THR, rights to the book have been sold in 32 countries, making it now the best-selling book in any genre in the entire world. I'm not sure anyone is really on board with a multi-season show.

It is also too early to associate any names with the project, but it's not too early to make some educated guesses on who could get cast to play some of the book's key players, people like Trump and Bannon, as well as Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, General John Kelly and others. Most insisted on anonymity to discuss one of the most embarrassing episodes of Trump's presidency so far. "Close to 95 percent" of Wolff's White House interactions were "done so at the request of Mr. Bannon", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.

Comedy Central now airs the series The President Show, which stars Anthony Atamanuik as Trump.
