Jay Roach Will Direct the Fire and Fury TV Series
Jay Roach has been chosen to direct Fire and Fury, the book-to-film adaptation of Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Roach previously directed: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Meet the Parents, Borat, Brüno, Game Change, and Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House.
Michael Wolff wrote the best-selling book and will be an executive producer on the TV adaptation. Also executive producing Fire and Fury will be Michael Jackson and John Lyons.
No one has been cast yet in Fire and Fury yet but because of the name recognition and the absurd scrutiny that this TV series will attract, Roach, Wolff, and company will be able to attract top flight talent for this production.
The television and film rights to Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House were purchased by Endeavor Content.
The book synopsis for Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House gives insight into some of the topics that will probably be broached in the Endeavor Content-produced TV series:
With extraordinary access to the West Wing, Michael Wolff reveals what happened behind-the-scenes in the first nine months of the most controversial presidency of our time in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.
Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country?and the world?has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief.
This riveting and explosive account of Trump’s administration provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office, including:
— What President Trump’s staff really thinks of him
— What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama
— Why FBI director James Comey was really fired
— Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t be in the same room
— Who is really directing the Trump administration’s strategy in the wake of Bannon’s firing
— What the secret to communicating with Trump is
— What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers
With the continuous and on-going drama in the current White House, the above might only cover part or all of the first season of the series.
