Disgraced ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen shopping his own reality show ‘The Fixer’: video

Must read

Michael Cohen will “fix your problems,” using the skills he learned working for “a notoriously bad man,” according to a promo sizzle reel for “The Fixer,” a reality-TV show concept he’s been shopping to studios.

In the unintentionally hilarious promo video, which The Post obtained exclusively, Cohen stalks the streets of Manhattan in a moody ripoff of his old boss’s mega-hit “The Apprentice.”

Clad in darks suits, the disgraced lawyer zips along Park Avenue on the Upper East Side during much of the narration, which is spliced between stock footage of cable-news reports on his scandals.

At one point, Cohen appears seated behind a desk promising to use his darks arts for “the little guy.”

“The Fixer” — a reference to Cohens’ time working as Trump’s no-holds-barred attorney —  would involve Cohen being placed into problematic business scenarios in need of “fixing,” insiders previously told The Post.

“I fixed [Trump’s] problems both professional and personal, gaining power, wealth and notoriety for myself in the process. And I paid the price for it,” Cohen begins in the three-minute spot as dramatic music plays in the background.

In 2018 Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to tax evasion and violating campaign-finance laws.

Michael Cohen produced a dramatic sizzle reel for a proposed reality show called “The Fixer.”

“Since then, I’ve been on a journey of redemption, working to set things right with my family, my friends, my country, speaking truth to power and calling it like I see it,” Cohen continues. “Now I’m paying it forward, wielding the tools that I’ve learned for regular people in trouble.

“The little guy doesn’t usually have access to people with my particular set of skills. But that’s all about to change. I’ll work with you, offering expertise, advice, and solutions to fix your problems. Together we will change your life” Cohen says.

“I am your fixer.”

Cohen previously told The Post he was working with Colin Whelan of Conveyor Media, whose past credits include “Joe Exotic: Tigers, Lies and Cover-Up” for Investigation Discovery; “Cooking On High” for Netflix; and “Bargain Mansions” for HGTV.

The former fixer is expected to be one of the marquee witnesses in Trump’s hush-money trial in Manhattan — where he will testify on Monday.

The former president has been accused of using Cohen to pay porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 to buy her silence over an alleged affair and improperly influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

Trump has long maintained his innocence and denied an improper relationship with Daniels.

Cohen critics took a dim view of the idea — including his one-time foe, former Stormy Daniel attorney Michael Avenatti.

“He would have a much better shot if he was pitching a show called ‘The Moron’. This guy breaks everything he touches in a spectacularly stupid kind of way,” Avenatti told The Post.
