National Enquirer: The Untold Story!, from Sony Pictures Television, is inspired by the 2019 feature documentary Scandalous: The Untold Story of the National Enquirer, which was produced and directed by Mark Landsman. Kenny Kyle will write the limited series with Landsman serving as executive producer. Kyle will use source material from Scandalous for a "sizzling and immersive exposé" of the National Enquirer’s own “Untold Story." National Enquirer: The Untold Story! will "center on the men and women who made up the notorious tabloid’s leadership and ranks," per Deadline. "From its mafia-linked founder Gene Pope, to the UK reporters he poached from Fleet Street, to the Ivy League recruits who were all invited to the wild party of booze, drugs, bottomless expense accounts and skyrocketing profits, Untold Story! will explore the National Enquirer’s precarious evolution into the political realm and its indelible impact on America’s relationship with the truth."
