WATCH: Full trailer of The Comey Rule with Irishman Brendan Gleeson starring as Donald Trump

THE FULL trailer of The Comey Rule has been released featuring a first proper glimpse into Brendan Gleeson's depiction of Donald Trump.

The Irish actor plays the US President in the series, which looks at his dealings with former FBI Director James Comey.

It delves into the possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential race.

The miniseries is based on a non-fiction book by former FBI Director James Comey, and will air in two parts: the first surrounding the dramatic lead-up to the 2016 elections, including the FBI investigation into Hilary Clinton's emails and the eventual shock success of Donald Trump.

The second part 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".

Comey was eventually fired by the president while the investigating took place.

Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy and Michael Kelly also star in the series, which is based on A Higher Loyalty, a book written by Comey himself.

The two-part series airs in the United States on September 27th, though no date for the Ireland or UK release has been announced yet.
