Trump exposé to become TV series

The bestselling exposé Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by journalist Michael Wolff is about to hit the small screen.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Mr Wolff has sold television rights for seven figures.

President Trump has condemned the book, which depicts a chaotic administration and a president unfit for office, as full of made-up stories.

It is not yet known which network will screen the series.

The rights have been sold to Endeavor Content and Mr Wolff will executive produce the project alongside former Channel 4 and BBC executive Michael Jackson, who now runs Two Cities Television.

After leaked excerpts created a public sensation, Mr Trump responded angrily on Twitter, calling the book "boring and untruthful" and written by a "total loser".

Mr Wolff thanked the president in an NBC interview, saying "not only is he helping me sell books, but he's helping me prove the point of the book."
