Showtime released its trailer for its upcoming docudrama, The Comey Rule, a two-day TV series about former FBI Director James Comey and President Trump.

Jeff Daniels will star as Comey, while Brendan Gleeson portrays Trump.

The star-studded miniseries is based on Comey’s memoir A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership and will air on Sept. 27 and Sept. 28.

Actor Jeff Daniels has some things in common with fired FBI Director James Comey.

For one, Daniels and Comey are both critics of President Donald Trump.

And now, the Emmy-winning actor will play Comey in a miniseries adaptation of Comey’s memoir, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership.”

Filming begins in November and an airdate will be announced later, reports Deadline, a website that reports on the entertainment industry.

It has yet to be decided whether the limited series will air on Showtime, CBS All Access or potentially both, Deadline reports.

Comey was fired by President Donald Trump in 2017.
