A book that uncovered the background of one of the stars of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" is being shopped to studios as a possible TV series, the New York Post reports.
The book, "Cop Without a Badge," was first published 14 years ago and details Danielle Staub’s drug-dealing past, the article says. Since her appearance on the Bravo reality show last season, the book has been reissued.
TV writer David Black, who has worked on "Law & Order," and former "Cosby Mysteries" writer Charles Kipps, who wrote the book, are pitching a series next week to Hollywood studios, the story says.
A number of studios are reportedly interested in projects focused on the book’s lead character, ex-con man Kevin Maher, who was recruited from prison and became a police informant, the story reports. Maher and Staub were married for a short time in the 1980s.
