Staff Reporter | On 26, Aug 2020
The Comey Rule comes to Sky Atlantic this September and a new trailer gives us a first look at the drama.
Starring Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) as former FBI Director James Comey and Brendan Gleeson (Mr. Mercedes) as President Donald J. Trump, the two-part event series was adapted for the screen and directed by Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, Shattered Glass) and executive produced by Shane Salerno, Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin and Ray.
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 Rules is a behind-the-headlines account of the historically turbulent events surrounding the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath, which divided a nation.
It is not a biopic of one man, but the story of two powerful figures, Comey and Trump, whose strikingly different personalities, ethics and loyalties put them on a collision course. The series was produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Home Run Productions, The Story Factory, and Secret Hideout.
It will premiere on 30th September. Here’s the trailer:
