NEW YORK —

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.
