A prominent television agent has pitched a TV show featuring Anthony Scaramucci and Michael Avenatti to CNN and MSNBC.

Agent Jay Sures says the short-lived White House Communications Director and the lawyer for alleged Trump mistress and porn star Stormy Daniels would square-off in a Crossfire-style show.

According to the New York Times, MSNBC and CNN declined to respond to the reports. And Misters Sures and Scaramucci had nothing to say either. But Attorney Avenatti sure did.

He told the Times, “I have no interest in television right now. I enjoy my law practice and look forward to prevailing on behalf of my client Stormy Daniels.”

That’s laughable, considering Avenatti has been setting records for “interest in television” lately. He’s been interviewed nearly 150 times in ten weeks, and often makes appearances on CNN and MSNBC multiple times a day.

Anthony Scaramucci and Michael Avenatti were last seen together attending a party hosted by Jay Sures after the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last month. Sures has worked as agent for Dr. Phil, Norah O’Donnell, and Chuck Todd.
