Fire And Fury: controversial White House account to head to TV screens

Fire And Fury, the White House expose met with outrage from Donald Trump, is heading to television after the rights were purchased in a deal reported to be worth seven figures.

Endeavour Content confirmed on Wednesday that it had acquired the rights to make a TV series of the book by journalist Michael Wolff.

Wolff will helm the production as executive producer while former BBC director of television Michael Jackson, now chief executive of Two Cities Television, will also produce, an Endeavour spokeswoman said.

The US president defended his mental state and declared he was a “very stable genius” after the book raised questions about his fitness for office.

The book, released earlier this month, led to a public spat between Mr Trump and Steve Bannon, the former chief strategist who helped secure the presidency for the property mogul.

Mr Bannon questioned the his former boss’s competence in the book and Mr Trump responded by discrediting him as having lost his mind and nicknaming him “sloppy Steve”.

Breitbart, the right-wing news website that has supported Mr Trump, announced that Mr Bannon would be stepping down as executive chairman in the wake of his comments.

Endeavour will now attempt to find a network for the series.
