Brace yourselves, political junkies, because Michael Wolff‘s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House is coming to a small screen near you.
Endeavor Content has acquired the film and television rights to the book in a lucrative deal that is reportedly worth seven figures, per The Hollywood Reporter. Wolff, who penned the controversial book, is also set to executive produce the project along side Channel 4 and BBC executive Michael Jackson, who currently acts as CEO of Two Cities Television.
As of yet no network is attached to the project that has been flooding the media cycles for the last few weeks.
Since its release, Donald Trump and the White House have largely denied the salacious details contained within the book.
It largely paints Trump as unprepared for the difficulty of his position, and that he is unable to focus his attention on policy details. The book includes quotes from ex-White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who called the 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer as “treasonous.” Bannon eventually stepped down from his position at Breitbart News over the uproar caused by his statements.
Endeavor Content was formed back in October out of William Morris Endeavor and IMG, both sister companies. Wolff’s deal will be the largest for the new production company.
