Showtime have released the official trailer for the upcoming two-part limited series of The Comey Rule, based on the novel A Higher Loyalty by former FBI director James Comey.
The official synopsis for the limited series is as follows:
Based on Comey’s No. 1 New York Times bestselling book A Higher Loyalty and more than a year of additional interviews with a number of key principals, The Comey Rule is an immersive, behind-the-headlines account of the historically turbulent events surrounding the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath, which divided a nation. 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.
The limited series is adapted and directed by Billy Ray and stars Jeff Daniels, Brendan Gleeson, Michael Kelly, Jennifer Ehle, Holly Hunter, Peter Coyote, Steven Pasquale, Oona Chaplin, Scoot McNairy, William Sadler, T.R Knight, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Brian d’Arcy James, Steve Zissis, Shawn Doyle, Jonathan Banks, Richard Thomas, Seann Gallagher, Amy Seimetz, Damon Gupton, Joe Lo Truglio, Michael Hyatt and Spencer Garrett.
The Comey Rule will premiere in the U.S on Showtime on the 27th September 2020. There’s no official UK date as of yet.
