Spike TV Acquires Script for Richard D. Bronson's 'The War at the Shore'
Spike TV has joined forces with Kevin Spacey's Trigger Street Productions and Giant Pirates Entertainment to develop a script for an original special-event series based on the best-selling book "The War At The Shore" by Richard D. "Skip" Bronson. The book chronicles the high-stakes battle between Donald Trump and Steve Wynn over the future of one of America's most popular vacation and gambling meccas, Atlantic City.
Dana Brunetti from Trigger Street Productions is the Executive Producer for "The War At The Shore." Brunetti, who served as Producer for "The Social Network" and "Captain Phillips," both nominated for an Academy Award(R) for Best Picture, is currently producing the highly-anticipated "50 Shades of Grey." He is also an Executive Producer on the critically-acclaimed series "House of Cards."
Troy Searer ("Breaking Bonaduce," "Obsessed") and Ross Jacobson ("In A World," "Big Sur") from Giant Pirates Entertainment also serve as Executive Producers for "The War At The Shore."
The script focuses on the epic five-year (1995-2000) battle between two of the most outspoken and dynamic businessmen of our time, Trump and Wynn, who fought a bare-knuckled brawl with billions of dollars on the line and the very future of the seaside resort community at stake.
Bronson, the author of "The War At The Shore," is a renowned businessman and developer, who was Wynn's point man in Atlantic City, as they tried to develop a new resort complex there against huge odds. He reveals the Inside Story of this titanic rumble and presents a rare look at the world of casino development and the essential modern chapter in the history of America's "Boardwalk Empire." The book was published by Overlook Hardcover and distributed by Penguin.
