Talent Agency Pitching Avenatti/Scaramucci Reboot of Crossfire


http://variety.com/2018/tv/news/uta-avenatti-scaramucci-cnn-msnbc-1202813942/



The idea sounds like an update of “Crossfire,” the venerable CNN program that pit one liberal pundit (“on the left”) against a conservative commentator (“on the right”), and relied on everyone from Pat Buchanan and Robert Novak to Michael Kinsley, Tucker Carlson and James Carville. The program ran initially on CNN between 1982 and 2005, and enjoyed a short, second run in 2013 and 2014 when its panelists included Newt Gingrich, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter, and Van Jones.

Jay Sures, the co-president of UTA, is said to have been the executive sussing out interest in the potential project. The trio was spotted together at the recent White House Correspondents Dinner (above, pictured).

1. If I were Avenatti, I would not do it...

Scare-us-mucho is not in the same league, and I would try to remain more serious a demeanor. In fact, I would not want any association whatsoever with Scare-us-mucho....

12. That's what bugs me about this country...

...money is NOT everything. Reputation, and how you get your money, matters just as much. Otherwise, we are all Trumps....

I love the Mooch. Only true comic relief in this whole Trump nightmare.

4. I will think a lot less of Avenatti

if he associates himself in any way with that clusterfuck, loudmouth, publicity hound, buffone Scaramucci. Definitely a quick way for Avenatti to cede the high ground and a classic case of "lie down with dogs......."

6. They make a great pair

 



But you do have a point. Scaramucci is something of a publicity hound, and would overwhelm the aloof and camera shy Avenatti.

But together, they could be the greatest thing since Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin!

11. Thankfully, Avenatti has said no to this farce

"I have no intention of having a career in television. My focus is on this case and my other clients."


https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/michael-avenatti-anthony-scaramucci-led-tv-show-being-shopped-1112876

He needs to maintain a certain level of dignity and gravitas while pursuing this case. Being associated with the Mooch will not do him any favors.
