President Trump is considering going back to reality TV after he leaves the White House.
Trump and Apprentice creator Mark Burnett have occasionally spoken over the phone since Trump won the 2016 election and have pitched potential TV projects to each other, according to the Daily Beast.
One of the proposed projects was a new version of The Apprentice featuring Trump. The politics-themed show would be titled The Apprentice: White House.
“There have been several discussions between Burnett and Trump about The Apprentice: White House,” a person with knowledge of the discussions said. “It is something Burnett thinks could be a money-spinner, and Trump is very keen on doing.”
Another source confirmed the two talked about the show but said, “as far as I know, the discussion did not go far.”
A representative for Burnett denied the two had discussed teaming up on television shows “in any shape or form.”
NBC, which aired the show, cut ties with Trump in 2015 as he was running for president.
Burnett faced repeated demands during the 2016 campaign to release footage from The Apprentice that some former crew members alleged would show Trump acting in offensive ways.
The TV producer, who has not said whether such footage exists, argued that he had no legal right to release the unaired footage.
