Although Trigger Street Productions will develop the series, Kevin Spacey is not attached to the project.
The book follows the five-year epic battle between real estate mogul Donald Trump and Steve Wynn over the future of one of the U.S.’s gambling meccas, Atlantic City. From 1995-2000, Trump embarked on an all-out legal and propaganda war to prevent Wynn from developing a new resort complex in the New Jersey city. The book is written from Bronson’s perspective, as he was Wynn’s right-hand man during the fight.
“The War at the Shore” is part of Spike’s strategy to return to scripted programming with limited event series, which the network unveiled last April.
