Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury To Be Adapted For Television

Start fan-casting Donald Trump now, because Michael Wolff's bestselling Fire and Fury nonfiction glimpse into the Trump White House is about to become a television series.

The explosive allegations have led to sharp criticism from the White House and its allies, who have dismissed Wolff's book as "trashy tabloid fiction".

Showtime is also preparing to release the animated series Our Cartoon President, which is executive produced by Stephen Colbert.

Copies of the book "Fire and Fury" by author Michael Wolff are displayed on a shelf at Book Passage on January 5, 2018 in Corte Madera, California. Wolff referes to how Trump was using the campaign as a pre-runner to getting better TV exposure.

A television show based on the controversial tell-all book of President Donald Trump's White House is already in the works. Endeavor Content reportedly stuck a deal "in the seven-figure range" for the film and TV rights, and as THR reports, is now looking to shop a TV project.

A network has not yet been attached to the project, though Wolff is signed to executive produce alongside former Channel 4 and BBC executive Michael Jackson, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The best-selling book and Wolff have faced heavy criticism for some inaccuracies since its publication, and critics have indicated readers who followed the Trump administration's controversies in year one would not find anything new. This much publicised book offers a personality driven roller coaster ride through the first year of the Trump presidency.

More to come on this as we hear it. It led to a public falling-out between Trump and his former adviser Steve Bannon. In fact, Wolff even slips into using Bannon's sarcastic slang terms to describe other members of Trump's inner circle (such as Jarvanka to refer to Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump).
