Showtime Unveils First Look Trailer, Premiere Date For Roger Ailes Miniseries (Watch)
Russell Crowe’s portrayal of the controversial Fox News chief Roger Ailes will be coming to Showtime on Sunday, June 30, the network has announced.

Showtime has also released an unnerving first look trailer for the miniseries, in which Crowe’s Ailes takes over Fox News and starts bending it to his will.

“Here in America, television news is king,” the character says. “We’re gonna give them a vision of the world the way they want it to be…we’re way past politics, it’s war.”

The trailer more than hints at the sexual harassment allegations which brought about Ailes’ downfall, as the character is seen touching Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, played by Naomi Watts, who looks extremely uncomfortable with his actions.

The series is based on Gabriel Sherman’s bestselling book, “The Loudest Voice in the Room,” and tells the story of Ailes and his rise and fall at Fox News.

Showtime Sets Roger Ailes Limited Series for Summer, ‘Homeland’ Final Season Pushed to Fall

  • The Wrap
Showtime has set its eagerly awaited limited series about former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes to debut this summer, while final season of “Homeland” premiere in the fall.

Gary Levine, co-president of entertainment at Showtime, made the announcements at the television critics association press tour Thursday. Production on the eighth and final season of the Emmy-winning “Homeland” will begin next week.

Not much is known about the final season of “Homeland,” which stars Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin. Last spring, showrunner Alex Gansa said that the final season won’t feature any parallels to Donald Trump.

“We’re going to start fresh in Season 8 and probably do a fairly big time jump between 7 and 8 and put any Trump parallels behind us,” Gansa told Entertainment Weekly. “We’ll tell a very contained story, hopefully in Israel.”
