Fire and Fury book set for TV series adaptation
The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the controversial new book detailing the first year of Donald Trump’s White House is set for a television adaptation. Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House has been optioned by Endeavor Content with plans to turn the book into a television series, for which they’re now seeking a home. Wolff will serve as executive producer alongside British television producer Michael Jackson.
Originally set for a January 9 release, the book’s debut was moved ahead following a failed attempt by the White House to stop its publication. Fire and Fury debuted at the #1 position on the New York Times best-seller list after just two days of being on shelves and remains the best selling book worldwide.
Fire and Fury is described as follows by its publisher:
“The first nine months of Donald Trump’s term were stormy, outrageous—and absolutely mesmerizing. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, bestselling author Michael Wolff tells the riveting story of how Trump launched a tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself.’
“In this explosive book, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among the revelations:
Never before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.”
