Trump and 'Apprentice' Creator Mark Burnett Are Discussing Their Next TV Show

Source: Daily Beast

According to three people with knowledge of the situation and another source close to Trump, Apprentice creator Mark Burnett and the president have sporadically kept in touch, mostly over the phone, since Trump won the election. The pair remain friends, these sources say, and have discussed reviving their creative partnership, pitching each other details on potential TV projects to be filmed after the Trump presidency.

One of the ideas kicked around by Burnett and the president was shooting a new version of the Trump-branded Apprentice, tentatively titled The Apprentice: White House, and to produce it shortly after the president leaves office. This time, however, the TV program would be explicitly politics-themed and take full advantage of Trump’s status as a former president of the United States and a newfound Republican kingmaker.

“There have been several discussions between Burnett and Trump about The Apprentice: White House,” a person with knowledge of the situation told The Daily Beast. “It is something Burnett thinks could be a money-spinner and Trump is very keen on doing.”

Another one of the knowledgeable sources said, “They actually talked about an Apprentice: White House,” but conceded that “as far as I know, the discussion did not go far.”

1. But Obama's book deal!

Hypocrite! Remember the huge deal he tried to make about Obama possibly arranging his book deal while still president? Which, by the way, has never been substantiated.

4. I've got a better idea for Mark Burnett....

Survivor- Ex-Pres: 45 and his whole family are stranded on a desert island with nothing but the clothes on their backs and a bag of rice.
There are cameras everywhere on the island. The regular Survivor format will do, with the exception of being voted off the island. NO ONE gets off the island. Hilarity ensues.

Even better idea for Mr. Burnett: release the out-takes of The Apprentice as pay-per-view. There's gold in them thar hills.

Not the first, but definitely different due to the new occupant.

I might even watch an episode or two!

22. What's the prize for the winner? A job in government?

One has to either be elected, or appointed by an elected official. Jobs available to walk-in applicants would be too low-level for anyone who wanted to be on the show.

OTOH, I'd be happy if Trump left office ASAP so he could appear on the show...

Clinton Foundation, Habitat, grand speaking tours... none of them considered sitcom.

Maybe a show called Orange Is The New Asterisk.
