HBO has struck what is being called "a secret deal" for an untitled project focusing on Fox News President Roger Ailes, Deadline.com reports.
The project is based on a manuscript by Gabriel Sherman, who has written two cover stories for New York magazine about Ailes and Fox News, according to the story.
Sherman signed a contract with Random House last year for a book that was tentatively titled “The Loudest Voice in the Room: An Inside Account of the Rise of Fox News," although the project doesn’t now have a formal title.
The HBO project will be executive produced by two of Ailes’ competitors: co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s "Morning Joe,” according to the article.
"None of this has been announced yet because sources tell me Sherman is still researching the book and plans to finish writing it by the end of the summer for a 2013 publishing date," writes Deadline’s Nikki Finke.
