The 1990s turf war between Donald Trump and fellow casino mogul Steve Wynn on the Atlantic City, N.J., strip could soon be the subject of a limited-run TV series.

Male-themed cable network Spike TV optioned a script for a potential series, to be based on Richard D. Bronson’s 2012 nonfiction book “The War at the Shore.” Bronson, who serves on the board of directors of Starwood Property Trust, worked for Wynn as they fought to develop a new casino resort despite attempts by Trump to halt the project. The dispute spanned from 1995 to 2000. Trump and Wynn “fought a bare-knuckled brawl with billions of dollars on the line and the very future of the seaside resort community at stake,” the release said, cited by the New York Post. Actor Kevin Spacey’s production company, Trigger Street Productions, is developing the series.

In 2012, Wynn picked up a penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton for $70 million, as previously reported. [NYP]Mark Maurer
