After months of waiting, Showtime‘s James Comey series is finally here. The Comey Rule miniseries goes back to the not-so-distant past to tell the story of Comey and President Donald Trump’s relationship, borrowing from the book A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, The Comey Rule written by the former FBI director.
Actors Jeff Daniels and Brenda Gleeson transform for The Comey Rule, with Daniels taking on the role of Comey and Gleeson doing his best Trump impersonation. You can get a sneak peek for yourself in The Comey Rule trailer above. While the limited series was originally scheduled for a November release, Showtime announced earlier this summer that we’d be getting The Comey Rule before the 2020 election, shifting the premiere date to Sept. 27, six weeks before Election Day.
Now, we’re finally getting to see the series Showtime describes as “an immersive, behind the headlines account of the turbulent events surrounding the 2016 election and its aftermath.” Here’s everything you need to know to watch the political drama:
