(Exclusive) The Comey Rule (2020) Official Teaser

[WATCH] 'The Comey Rule' Trailer: Showtime's James Comey Series

The Irish actor is nearly unrecognisable as the US President.

In 30 dramatic seconds, a trailer released Wednesday teases to "The Comey Rule", the upcoming two-day TV special in which Brendan Gleeson will transform into President Trump and Jeff Daniels will become the Federal Bureau of Investigation director he memorably axed. There's plenty of juicy material for the show to tackle, such as the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails and its impact on Election Night, and Comey's inquiry into the claims of Trump-Russia connections.

Part one of the series examines the earliest days of the Russian Federation investigation, the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails and their impact on Election Night 2016, when Donald Trump stunned the world and was elected president.

The miniseries is adapted from Comey's New York Times bestselling memoir, A higher loyalty, and a year of interviews with key figures in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

The 30-second teaser shows glimpses of Gleeson in Mr Trump's trademark hairstyle while growling "I'm the president now" in an imitation of the president's distinctive voice.

In accordance with Showtime, The Comey Rule is "an immersive, behind-the-headlines account of the traditionally turbulent occasions surrounding the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath, which divided a nation".

Director Billy Ray, who previously worked on films like Captain Phillips and Richard Jewell, spoke to Vanity Fair about creating the miniseries.

Network Showtime changed course and the four-hour miniseries will now air over two nights, beginning on September 27, roughly six weeks before U.S. voters go to the polls. "Good for you, ' and I'd say, 'I didn't write it. Donald Trump did'".

The series also features an impressive supporting cast, including Michael Kelly as Andrew McCabe, Jennifer Ehle as Patrice Comey and Holly Hunter as Sally Yates.

The trailer also sets up a clash of titans between the two as they begin to work together.
