The Comey Rule

Brendan Gleeson is playing Donald Trump in an upcoming miniseries The Comey Rule.

The show follows the story of former FBI Director James Comey.

The script was adapted from Comey's book A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership.

The two-part series is set to take viewers inside corridors of power at the White House.

Naturally, Donald Trump plays a part and Gleeson has stepped into his shoes for the role.

US TV network Showtime released a first look at the show in June and this week we got the full trailer.

The Comey Rule is due for release in November this year.

The first episode will focus on the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails, the Russian investigation, and how it all impacted the 2016 election.

According to Variety, part two will look at 'a virtual day-by-day account of the tempestuous relationship between Comey and Trump and the intense and chaotic first months of the Trump presidency.'

Holly Hunter will play Acting Attorney General Sally Yates

Showtime said, '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.'

Kingsley Ben-Adir will play former President Barack Obama

In addition to Brendan Gleeson the show stars Jeff Daniels, Holly Hunter, Michael Kelly, Jennifer Ehle, Peter Coyote and Kingsley Ben-Adir.

The Comey Rule begins on 27th September on Showtime.
