SIRIUSXM and CNN host MICHAEL SMERCONISH's novel "TALK" has been optioned for a television drama by WARNER BROS., reports POLITICO. The show is attached to Exec. Producers JIM LEONARD and MICHAEL ROBIN.
The site says that the book, the story of a conservative radio talker influencing a presidential election, will be turned into a one-hour drama series, targeted to air before the 2016 election.
SMERCONISH told POLITICO that he thinks "the story lends itself to TV beautifully. In the world of ‘HOUSE OF CARDS’ and ‘ALPHA HOUSE,’ I can definitely see ‘TALK’ on a television screen.”
