See Brendan Gleeson As Donald Trump In First Trailer For New TV Series

Watch the first trailer for The Comey Rule, which is coming to Showtime in September.

Showtime has published the first trailer for its political limited series The Comey Rule, showing Brendan Gleeson as Donald Trump and Jeff Daniels as former FBI director James Comey.

As you can see in the trailer, Gleeson looks and sounds the part of the President of the United States, while Daniels looks convincing as well.

The miniseries is based on Comey's book, A Higher Loyalty, as well as "more than a year of additional interviews" with key subjects. Showtime, who shares a parent company in ViacomCBS with GameSpot, describes the show as an "immersive, behind-the-headlines account of the historically turbulent events surrounding the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath."

Holly Hunter also stars in the show as former attorney general Sally Yates, while Michael Kelly will portray the former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe. Jonathan Banks will play former National Intelligence Director James Clapper, while Kingsley Ben-Adir will play Barack Obama.

The Comey Rule will premiere on September 27. It's written and directed by Billy Ray, who previously wrote the Tom Hanks movie Captain Phillips.
