The Mooch is working on a sitcom

Anthony Scaramucci confirmed he is working on a sitcom potentially titled Attack of the Swamp Monsters, about a Wall Street entrepreneur who gets into politics "to the great dismay of longtime political hacks who go straight for the jugular," TMZ reports.

The project follows Scaramucci's short-lived stint as White House communications director, which ultimately resulted in the resignation of former press secretary Sean Spicer and ousting of former chief of staff Reince Priebus. An alternative title for the sitcom is 10 Days in July, making it pretty clear the show is about Scaramucci's experience in the White House.

"These guys were trying to knock me out," Scaramucci said of his sitcom character. "I'm a Wall Street entrepreneur, they're all in the political class. I like to tell people how I really feel, I'm very honest. These guys like to run around like little rats and backstab each other. That's not me."

You'll have to hold your horses, though — the show is still a long way from heading to air, though TMZ reports a "major Hollywood producer" is interested. "It's still very early," said the Mooch, "but I think there's a lot of fun content." Watch below. Jeva Lange
