Jeff Daniels and Brendan Gleeson star as former FBI Director James Comey and President Donald J. Trump in The Comey Rule, coming to Sky Atlantic and NOW TV on September 30th. Watch the official trailer...

This two-part event series is not a biopic of one man but tells the story of two powerful men, whose strikingly different ethics and loyalties put them on a collision course.

That story is based on Comey’s No. 1 New York Times bestselling book A Higher Loyalty, which 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. Add in more than a year of additional interviews with a number of key principals, and 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.
