MGM Silent On Unaired "The Apprentice" Footage

MGM bought the studio of The Apprentice executive producer Mark Burnett in 2005.

MGM, which purchased The Apprentice executive producer Mark Burnett's studio in 2015, did not respond to BuzzFeed News requests on Sunday asking if they will release unaired footage of Donald Trump on the show — if they have it.

Burnett faced mounting pressure to release footage after Friday's release of a 2005 hot mic video of Donald Trump apparently bragging about sexually assaulting women and trying to have sex with a married woman.

More than 20 former contestants, crew members, and editors told the Associated Press that Trump treated women on the show inappropriately, including talking about which contestants he would like to have sex with and rating them by breast size.

A source close to Burnett told BuzzFeed News that Burnett supports Trump, and has threatened his staff with a $5 million fine if the outtakes are made public.

Burnett “is pro-Trump and has made clear to his teams that he will sue anyone who leaks,” the person said.

It's possible, though, that the footage may not be Burnett's to release.

MGM acquired 55% of Burnett's studio in 2014, and in 2015, they bought out the remainder of the company and named Burnett president of MGM Television.

A top spokesperson for MGM did not respond to request for comment by BuzzFeed News sent earlier this evening.

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
