“The Comey Rule”, starring Emmy® winner Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) as former FBI Director James Comey and Emmy winner Brendan Gleeson (Mr. Mercedes) as President Donald J. Trump will debut on Sky Atlantic on 30th September.
Based on James 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 two-part event series was adapted for the screen and directed by Oscar® nominated screenwriter Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, Shattered Glass) and executive produced by Shane Salerno, Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin and Ray.
“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 series was produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Home Run Productions, The Story Factory, and Secret Hideout.
