Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury could be adapted into a TV series — as if it could somehow top the 24-7 news cycle reality show hellstorm we’re already living through. 

But it’s 2018, so here we are. The Hollywood Reporter says that Endeavor Content has purchased the rights to Wolff’s controversial tome for seven figures. 

There’s no network attached yet, but it could wind up anywhere, given the book veers from political drama to slapstick comedy to horror anthology. 

Because selling so many books and the rights to the books isn’t enough, Wolff is also signed up to be executive producer of the series with THR adding that British television exec Michael Jackson would also produce the series.

It’s still very early in the process, so don’t expect the series to hit your screen anytime soon, if at all. 

But given how much Trump vented his spleen on Twitter when Alec Baldwin began portraying him on SNL, only the ghost of Ronald Reagan knows what Trump will have to say about the actor who plays him in a Fire and Fury series. 

Pro tip for Wolff: Just hire the horrific robot from Disney World.

A new ‘Walking Dead’ series debuting with 10 episodes in 2020

Even more zombies.

“A new spin-off series based in The Walking Dead universe is coming to AMC in 2020.

Hot on the trail of the ninth season of The Walking Dead, AMC announced that a second spin-off will start production this summer and premiere sometime in 2020, IGN reported Monday. The new zombie show got a 10-episode order for its first season with Walking Dead writer Matt Negrete heading it up as a co-creator.

We don’t know a whole lot about the new Walking Dead show, but AMC did provide a short description that gives us a hint of what it will look like, saying the series will “feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.”

While The Walking Dead kicked off right at the beginning of the apocalypse, it looks like this spin-off will start down the line from when zombies first started eating people in the U.S., long enough for its protagonists to have been teens or younger when it began.

Right now, it’s not clear who the protagonists are or if they’ll be connected to anyone in the main series or the other spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead. We do know that filming will be happening in Virginia, which is where the main series takes place now.

The Walking Dead has given us a glimpse at what youths in the zombie apocalypse look like throughout the series, although these kids and teens have never really been the focus.”

“HBO has confirmed Game of Thrones‘ final supersized episodes, including three that hit the 80-minute mark. While the first two episodes will be around the average Game of Thrones hour, the series’ final four episodes will be – as promised – roughly the same runtime as a short feature film.

The first two episode run times were already confirmed, but HBO released all six on Friday.

Episode 1: 54 minutes
Episode 2: 58 minutes
Episode 3: 1 hours, 22 minutes
Episode 4: 1 hour, 18 minutes
Episode 5: 1 hour, 20 minutes
Episode 6: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Resourceful fans have been sussing out the official episode lengths for months now. Winter is Coming approximated all of them as early as January, thanks to some French press for the show.

On Monday, an online commenter figured out that tinkering with some HBO URLs revealed the exact run times of all six episodes, which are almost exactly as HBO went on to confirm.

Game of Thrones returns April 14.”
