Be watching when award winning Labrador, NL native Shawn Doyle plays Assistant Director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division Bill Priestap in Billy Ray’s politically charged limited series THE COMEY RULE.
“Based on Comey’s No. 1 New York Times bestselling book A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership (2018) and more than a year of additional interviews with a number of key principals, 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. THE COMEY RULE is not a biopic of one man, but is instead the story of two powerful figures, Comey and Trump, whose strikingly different personalities, ethics and loyalties put them on a collision course.”
Doyle’s part of a star packed cast that includes Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) as FBI Dir. James Comey, Oscar winner Holly Hunter (The Piano) as US Attorney General Sally Yates, Michael Kelly (House of Cards) as FBI Deputy Dir. Andrew McCabe and Brendan Gleeson (The Grand Seduction) who flat out nails his delivery as President Donald J. Trump. You can find the complete cast list here.
Written and directed by Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) THE COMEY RULE will air on Showtime in two – two hour parts on Sunday, September 27th and Monday, September 28th.
