The journalist who first broke news of former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes‘ departure from the network will now turn the story into a television miniseries.
Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit revealed this week that Blumhouse Television will take on the project, using “The Loudest Voice in the Room,” a book by New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman, as source material, The New York Times reported Wednesday.
Mr. Ailes‘ former employer, 21st Century Fox, issued an apology to former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson over the summer after she filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Mr. Ailes. A $20 million settlement agreement was eventually reached, along with Mr. Ailes‘ exit from the network after 20 years.
Blumhouse Television’s project, which does not yet have a network attached, is the first acquisition by company Co-presidents Jeremy Gold and Marci Wiseman, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Mr. Sherman and his wife are on board as co-executive producers.
Jack Abernethy, CEO of Fox Television Stations, and Bill Shine, senior executive vice president of Fox News, replaced Mr. Ailes in August and now serve as co-presidents of the news network.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to continue leading Fox News and Fox Business into the future and look forward to working alongside the incredible roster of talent, both on and off air, to make each network even more successful,” the duo said in a Sept. 14 press release.
