NEW YORK (AP) — Piers Morgan is going behind the scenes.

The host of CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live” has a deal with Gallery Books for “Shooting Straight: Guns, Gays, God, and George Clooney.” Gallery, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, announced Wednesday that the book is scheduled for October.

Morgan, in a statement issued by Gallery, promised a “warts and all” account of life at CNN and said the book would be like “‘The Newsroom’ on steroids,” referring to the HBO series.

According to Gallery, the book will be written in the style of a real-time look into headline stories such as the killing of Osama bin Laden and the school shootings in Newtown, Conn. Morgan used a similar diary format for his 2005 book “The Insider,” which detailed his years in British journalism.
