British-born media titans, Anna Wintour and Tina Brown have been in a bitter feud for decades and now all the high fashion drama will be revealed in a new TV show based on the rivalry

Variety revealed that US TV network, Bravo has ordered a new six-hour scripted TV series in the vein of recent hit show Feud (about screen legends Bette Davis and Joan Crawford famous on set feud), documenting all the fascinating, high-powered drama between two of the most important and interesting figures in the media arena. 

The Bravo project, titled All That Glitters is based on the book Newhouse by Thomas Maier and will, according to Variety,  "Present the "true story" of the behind-the-scenes rivalry, relationship and remarkable ascent of pop-culture icons of Vogue's Anna Wintour and Tina Brown of Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. As both bold and driven women fight their way to the top of a male-dominated industry driven by greed and betrayal, they each find new paths to change the world around them - Tina, through the intersection of the high-culture and celebrity, and Anna with an instinct for high fashion and emerging talent."

Wintour is the famously unflappable editor-in-chief of American Vogue and alleged inspiration behind blockbuster hit The Devil Wears Prada starring Meryl Streep. Tina Brown successfully revamped prestigious Brit mag Tatler before overhauling Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. Most recently Brown was the editor of The Daily Beast and Newsweek.

One of the igniting sparks for the feud is rumoured to revolve around a piece Brown ran in 2001 on Wintour's then boyfriend now husband, Shelby Bryan. Which is hard to verify as Brown and Wintour have never commented on the record about their rumoured feud.

All That Glitters is being written and executive produced by Boardwalk Empire's Lawrence Konner and Planet of the Apes Mark Rosenthal. No casting decisions as yet.
