The trailer for The Comey Rule has been released. In the clip, fans get a first look at Brendan Gleeson who plays Donald Trump.

The Irish actor is almost unrecognisable as the US President. Gleeson stars alongside Jeff Daniels who plays FBI director James Comey in the Showtime mini-series.

The Comey Rule is based on Comey's No. 1 New York Times bestselling tell-all book 'A Higher Loyalty'.

The drama will follow the turbulent events surrounding the 2016 presidential campaign and its aftermath.

Producers say The Comey Rule "is not a biopic of one man, but is instead the story of two powerful figures, Comey and Trump, whose strikingly different personalities, ethics and loyalties put them on a collision course".

Vanity Fair has released stills from the series.

The Comey Rule will premiere in the US on September 27th and September 28th, roughly six weeks before US voters go to the polls.

There's no word yet on an Irish air date.
