Watch Brendan Gleeson since President Trump in fresh play

Watch Brendan Gleeson since President Trump in fresh play”

Brendan Gleeson participates in a panel discussion during a first look screening of "Mr. Mercedes" S2 on August 8, 2018. The series explores the clash of personalities between the two men in 2016, following Donald Trump's election.

The first part of The Comey Rule will examine 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.

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.

The Comey Rule will air over two nights on 27-28 September, with a United Kingdom release yet to be confirmed. Comey's tempestuous with Trump came to an end in May 2017, when the President fired him.

It has been made clear throughout the process of making The Comey Rule that this is a serious portrayal of the president, vastly different to Alec Baldwin's Emmy-winning performances on Saturday Night Live.

The cast will also include the likes of Holly Hunter as former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, Michael Kelly as former FBI Director Andrew McCabe and Scoot McNairy as former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The Comey Rule, set to premiere in the U.S. in September, explores the clash of personalities between the two men following Mr Trump's election in 2016.

"I can't tell you how many times on our set, people would come up to me after Brendan would do a scene, and they'd say, 'Oh, my God, what a great line". Steve Zissis, Shawn Doyle, Brian d'Arcy James, Dalmar Abuzeid William Sadler, Richard Thomas, T.R. Knight, Joe Lo Truglio, Spencer Garrett, Michael Hyatt, Damon Gupton and Seann Gallagher also star.

The Comey Rule will undoubtedly be comprised of a two-part event series that spans four hours.
