A talent agency big has pitched a television show that would feature Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti and short-term White House spokesman Anthony Scaramucci squaring off over the news of the day.
United Talent Agency co-president Jay Sures pitched the show to a pair of cable networks, CNN and MSNBC, The New York Times reported.
No deal has been struck — but pairing the combative and media savvy Avenatti with the motor-mouthed financier and entrepreneur known as the Mooch would appear to be a natural addition to the shoutfests that dominate much of cable news in the era of President Trump.
Avenatti and Scaramucci both attended UTA’s party on the Friday night before the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Avenatti has been a fixture on cable news in recent months, making scores of appearances to defend Daniels and her claim of a one-night stand with Trump in 2006, an accusation the president denies.
He has also baited Team Trump and the president’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, regularly mocking the former mayor on TV and Twitter and questioning his legal skills.
Scaramucci, who had a cup of coffee as White House communications director, has reportedly long wanted a TV gig.
In the show concept that has been pitched to the networks, Scaramucci and Avenatti would “square off,” the Times reported.
