Roger Ailes to Be Subject of TV Mini-Series

A TV mini-series about Roger Ailes is reportedly in the works, The New York Times reported on Wednesday. Ailes was ousted from Fox News this summer after several women, including former anchor Gretchen Carlson, alleged that he had sexually harassed them. The project will be produced by journalist Gabriel Sherman, Spotlight director Tom McCarthy, and The Purge creator Jason Blum. Sherman was largely responsible for unearthing the allegations that led to Ailes’s ouster; and his stories in New York magazine and his book, The Loudest Voice in the Room, will be used as the series’ source material.
