Actor Jeff Daniels will portray former FBI Director James Comey in Showtime’s upcoming limited series “The Comey Rule,” Fox News reports.

The two-night TV series, set to debut next month, is based on Comey's New York Times bestselling tell-all book “A Higher Loyalty.”

The series is directed by Bill Ray. It features Brendan Gleeson as President Donald Trump, Holly Hunter as former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, Michael Kelly as former FBI Director Andrew McCabe and Kingsley Ben-Adir as President Barack Obama.

A trailer teasing the series shows Daniels and Gleeson in their roles.

According to a press release obtained by Fox News, the series covers "an immersive, behind-the-headlines account of the historically turbulent events surrounding the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath, which divided a nation.”

Part one will examine the “earliest days of the Russia 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," according to the press release. "Part two is a virtual day-by-day account of the tempestuous relationship between Comey and Trump and the intense and chaotic first months of the Trump presidency — where allies became enemies, enemies became friends and truth depended on what side you were on."

The two-part series will premiere on back-to-back nights — Sunday, Sept. 27 and Monday, Sept. 28 — at 9:00 p.m. ET on Showtime.
