Provided by People Showtime The Comey Rule

Ray mentioned: "We're the first depiction ever of Donald Trump as a dramatic character..."

The Comey Rule will be adapted from A Higher Loyalty, the autobiography of Comey which was released after he was sacked as Federal Bureau of Investigation director by Trump.

"I can't tell you how many times on our set, people would come up to me after Brendan would do a scene, and they'd say, 'Oh, my God, what a great line".

The first trailer of a mini-series in which Dubliner Brendan Gleeson plays Donald Trump has been released.

Network Showtime changed course and the four-hour miniseries will now air over two nights, beginning on September 27, roughly six weeks before USA voters go to the polls.

The two-part series, which is based on Comey's memoir A Higher Loyalty, will premiere on the Showtime network in the USA on September 27 - well ahead of the U.S. presidential election.


"Based on Showtime, The Comey Principle is" an immersive, behind-the-headlines accounts of the turbulent events surrounding the 2016 presidential elections and its aftermath, which split a country".

The $40 million four-hour series recently became a hot button issue when CBSViacom oddly chose to air it after the November elections, with speculation that higherups were doing a favor for President Trump.

In accordance with Self-importance Truthful, The Comey Rule portrays the president as "vulgar, corrupt, and deeply indebted to the manipulations of Vladimir Putin".

Holly Hunter plays Attorney General Sally Yates; Kingsley Ben-Adir takes on the role of President Barack Obama.

The Comey Rule, which was also informed by more than a year of additional interviews with key real-life figures, is described by Showtime as "the story of two powerful figures, Comey and Trump, whose strikingly different personalities, ethics and loyalties put them on a collision course". Steve Zissis, Shawn Doyle, Brian d'Arcy James, Dalmar Abuzeid William Sadler, Richard Thomas, T.R. Knight, Joe Lo Truglio, Spencer Garrett, Michael Hyatt, Damon Gupton and Seann Gallagher also star.
