A controversial best-selling book that has been described as “the publishing sensation of 2018” — Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” — is being made into a television series, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
“Endeavor Content — the financing and sales arm formed in October between sister companies William Morris Endeavor and IMG — has purchased film and television rights to the No. 1 best-selling book,” THR reports. “The massive deal is said to be in the seven-figure range. Endeavor Content plans to adapt the book as a TV series. A network is not yet attached, as Endeavor will now begin shopping the project.”
THR notes that Wolff will executive produce the series, with veteran Channel 4 and BBC executive Michael Jackson, who is now CEO of indie producer Two Cities Television, also set to produce.
