'Fire and Fury' book to become TV series

Just two weeks after the book arrived in bookstores, Michael Wolff's bestselling Trump administration tell-all Fire and Fury is already set to be adapted as a television series.

Copies of the book "Fire and Fury" by author Michael Wolff are displayed on a shelf at Book Passage on January 5, 2018 in Corte Madera, California. Trump's lawyers issued an ineffectual threat against Wolff's publisher, seeking to stop the book's publication; instead, it appeared in stores early and rocketed to the top of best-seller lists.

The details inside the book - including that Trump discussed sleeping with his friends' wives, dyed his hair and never really wanted to occupy the White House - have been hotly contested by the president. It led to a public falling-out between Trump and his former adviser Steve Bannon. In the film, everything will work out, just so long as the play being produced flops, so with the Trump campaign, everything would be fine just so long as he lost. This much publicised book offers a personality driven roller coaster ride through the first year of the Trump presidency. One of Wolff's favorite interview subjects, Bannon's voice can be found throughout the book.

"This is a president beyond reason, beyond control, beyond expecations", Wolff went on. "I take you inside the West Wing", said Wolff. Although if HBO wants to make it a movie, something on par with Game Change, which was about the rise of Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential election, I could also get behind that.

"It wasn't until late August that alarm bells were raised in the White House - when [White House communications director Hope] Hicks, Jared Kushner and their allies realized that fellow aides who had spoken with Wolff, especially Bannon, may have provided damaging anecdotes about them".
