Scathing Trump book 'Fire and Fury' heads to television
Michael Wolff's controversial "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", the explosive behind-the-scenes book about US President Donald Trump, is headed for television.
Hollywood entertainment company Endeavor Content reportedly paid seven-figures to purchase the film and television rights to the No. 1 selling book. The company is looking for a network to air the show.
No casting or air date has been set but the announcement set off speculation about who would play some of the key figures in the White House.
Wolff will executive produce the series, together with Channel 4 and BBC executive Michael Jackson.

"Fire and Fury", published on January 5, tells the stories of Donald Trump’s first year as president based on Wolff's exclusive access to the White House.
The book characterized Trump as unstable, inept and unprepared to be president. Trump responded on Twitter that Wolff was "a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book".
However, the book has been a publishing sensation since its coming out. It is the best-selling book worldwide, with 11 printings in just its first week, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Publisher Henry Holt says it received more than 1.4 million orders for "Fire and Fury", setting a record of fastest-selling non-fiction book in the company's history. Rights to the book have been secured in nearly three dozen countries.
