Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” to become best, worst TV show ever

According to THR, Endeavor Content has purchased the rights to adapt the title in a deal “said to be in the seven-figure range.” While there is no network attached to the project as of yet, author Wolff is said to be producing with former Channel 4 and BBC executive Michael Jackson, who has an extensive résumé in the documentary series field. It is unclear at this stage if the show itself will be a documentary or, God willing, a dramatic reenactment of President Donald Trump’s first year in office.

Aside from repeating in print many long-held suspicions about the Trump White House — that the president is barely in control of his facilities, that there is severe infighting in the administration, that it is pockmarked with mendacious operatives pursuing only their own interests — “Fire and Fury” is notable for alleging a number of inflammatory moments that have themselves become news items.

While Wolff spoke of Trump’s whirlwind furies and Ivanka Trump’s presidential ambitions, it was a supposed quote by former White House advisor Steve Bannon characterizing a meeting between a Russian lawyer and Donald Trump Jr. during the 2016 as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic” that turned out to be the most consequential. Quickly, Bannon would find himself the target of the president, the administration and much of the American right after those statements reached the press.
