Trigger Street Prods. Options ‘The War at the Shore’

Spike TV has joined Kevin Spacey’s Trigger Street Productions and Giant Pirates Entertainment to option the script for a special-event series based on Richard D. “Skip” Bronson’s best-selling book, “The War at the Shore.”

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.

Kate Winslet: A Thoroughly Modern Millie

  • Pajiba
When Melissa Leo blames her Academy Award f-bomb on her "Mildred Pierce" co-star, Kate Winslet, somehow it only makes Kate more attractive. The crush object of men and women alike apparently curses like a sailor and Leo says she picked it up like just another accent (though I'm thinking Melissa was cursing way before she met Kate). And in the on-set visit (video below), Winslet's "Mildred Pierce" fellow cast members rave about her comedic antics, claiming that she had them rolling with laughter. I defy anyone not to fall in love with her.

The HBO miniseries, based on James M. Cain's 1941 novel, chronicles the struggles of a Depression era divorced, single mother who does everything she can to be a success on her own--transforming herself from housewife to business woman. Obsessed with her daughter Veda (Evan Rachel Wood), Mildred eventually suffers the consequences of raising an extremely spoiled, self-centered child who,
