A television adaptation of Michael Wolff's novel Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House has been announced.

The searing expose into the first year of Donald Trump's presidency made headlines around the world with many of its revelations.

It was an immediate best-seller, with more than 1.4 million hardcovers sold in less than its first week.

A company entitled Endeavor Content has purchased screen rights to the book, with Wolff set to serve as executive producer of the ensuing TV show.

While a studio isn't yet attached to the project, the biggest question is who will portray the man himself.

Trump has been played by several actors over several years, perhaps most notably during his political career by Alec Baldwin on Saturday Night Live.

The TV show news was first reported on by the Hollywood Reporter, which doesn't say whether it'll have more of a comedic or dramatic tone.

The deal is described as "massive" and in the "seven-figure range".
