Billy Ray has found his next project post-The Comey Rule.
The writer/director will reteam with Shane Salerno and Showtime to develop a 3-episode limited series focusing on the riots by pro-Trump supporters on January 6 at the US Capitol in Washington D.C. Ray will write and direct all three episodes.
The untitled series will explore multiple plot threads about the riots, ranging from the assault itself to Congressional reaction to the FBI investigation.
‘The Comey Rule’ was Showtime’s highest-rated limited series and garnered multiple Golden Globe nominations, so it’s no shock that Showtime is eager to try and recreate that magic. The series starred Jeff Daniels as former FBI director James Comey and Brendan Gleeson as Donald Trump.
No release date for the Capitol Riots series has been set.
