The Comey Rule
The Comey Rule airs in Ireland tonight.
The two part series sees Irish actor Brendan Gleeson take on the role of Donald Trump.
While Jeff Daniels plays former FBI director James Comey.
The series is based on Comey’s memoir A Higher Loyalty.
Showtime have described it as, 'an immersive, behind-the-headlines account,' of the 2016 presidential election.
It's about how Comey and Trump's, 'strikingly different personalities, ethics and loyalties put them on a collision course.'
The reaction so far
The series premiered in America earlier this week, and Gleeson was praised online for his performance.
One Twitter user said, 'Brendan Gleeson’s portrayal of Trump in The Comey Rule is absolutely, horrifically, spot on...'
'Skin crawlingly chilling....'

So I just finished Thule, and wow. Just wow. The acting was spectacular by both Jeff Daniels and Brendan Gleeson, left me speechless. If you’re into politics and/or great acting, I highly recommend it. Seriously, I don’t know what else to say. It’s that good.
