In 2006, Trump hired a television writer, Gay Walch, to write a pilot of The Tower, a family drama in the vein of The West Wing and The Sopranos which would've followed the exploits of a business tycoon named "John Barron" as he and his large adult children (all of whom work for "The Barron Organization") attempt to build the tallest skyscraper in the world.
In writing the pilot, Walch borrowed scenes from Trump's book and his life, and in a way, we're almost sad this didn't get made. It would've made for great television to see Trump/Barron stiff his contractors on their pay or destroy a bunch of priceless statues or refuse to fit the tower with sprinklers. (Granted, that last one is a little dark, it would've made for a gripping season finale, though.)
After Walch completed the script, Trump approached several networks with his magnum opus, but they all rejected him because it wasn't a "compelling story." In 2008, he tried again with the same script, but this time, there was a twist -- that he, himself, would narrate the show, much like Desperate Housewives, but if Desperate Housewives was narrated by some guy who gets unreasonably horny whenever his daughter appears onscreen. (They passed.)
After The Tower, Trump's next big try came in 2012 in the form of Trump Tower -- a DARK, SCINTILLATING, RAUNCHY piece of shit novel that, according to the front cover, was written by Trump himself. It's easy to be suspicious of that claim, but having read the book (reviews that other people wrote), it's hard to say because Trump Tower is exactly what you'd expect a book by Trump to read like.
