The day the trade papers reported that ABC had greenlighted a biopic on Donald Trump, his dad and his grandpa, NBC used its syndicated show "Access Hollywood" as a vehicle for Trump, NBC's business partner on and star of "The Apprentice," to threaten ABC.
"On the next 'Access Hollywood,' Donald Trump says he "will definitely sue ABC if he finds the network's two-hour biopic on him inaccurate," the show stated in a news release e-mailed yesterday.

ABC says its movie will be based on Gwenda Blair's book "The Trumps: Three Generations That Built an Empire."
"In an interview with 'Access Hollywood's' Billy Bush, Donald Trump says he 'will definitely' sue ABC if he feels there are inaccuracies in the two-hour biopic the network plans on airing about him," the news release stated. The interview was to air last night on the show, which is produced by NBC and syndicated by NBC Universal.
"Trump says he will take legal action if he feels the ABC biopic about his life casts him in a false light," the announcement continued. " 'I will definitely,' he says. 'But as long as it's accurate, I won't be suing them.' "
