Scaramucci Working on Sitcom: ‘Attack of the Swamp Monsters’

Anthony Scaramucci, the Wall Street financier who lasted just 10 days as White House communications director, is working on a sitcom tentatively titled “Attack of the Swamp Monsters.”

In video taken by TMZ outside of his NYC restaurant, the Hunt & Fish Club, the Mooch said “it’s very early, but I think there’s a lot of fun content.”

“These guys were trying to knock me out, I’m a Wall Street entrepreneur, they’re all in the political class,” he continued. “I like to tell people how I really feel, I’m very honest. These guys like to run around like little rats and backstab each other. That’s not me.”

TMZ had previously reported that Scaramucci was working on a sitcom with a Hollywood producer, that would be about an outsider coming to Washington D.C. “to the great dismay of longtime political hacks who go straight for the jugular.”

President Donald Trump brought Scaramucci, a family friend and frequent surrogate, on as communications director to clean up leaks and provide a strong voice for the White House on television.

The Mooch’s hiring led to the resignation of press secretary Sean Spicer, and after a roller-coaster first week, the firing of chief of staff Reince Priebus.

But Scaramucci’s turbulent purge of the White House turned out to be more of a kamikaze mission: just days after he prevailed over Priebus, Scaramucci was dismissed from a White House that Trump had charged Gen. John Kelly with cleaning up.
