Showtime Unveils First Look Trailer, Premiere Date For Roger Ailes Miniseries (Watch)

In one portion of the trailer, Ailes (portrayed by Russell Crowe) can be seen groping Gretchen Carlson (played by Naomi Watts). "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".

A Blumhouse Television and Showtime co-production, The Loudest Voice (fka Secure and Hold: The Last Days of Roger Ailes) is based on Gabriel Sherman's bestselling book The Loudest Voice in the Room and his extensive reporting for NY magazine about the sordid allegations of sexual harassment that prompted the late Ailes' ouster at Fox News. Sherman also helped write the very first episode with the screenwriter, Tom McCarthy.

The series will debut on Showtime on June 30 and will also star Seth McFarlane as former Fox News PR Chief, Brian Lewis; Simon McBurney as Rupert Murdoch; Annabelle Wallis as former Fox News booker, Laurie Luhn; and Aleksa Palladino as Roger's longtime assistant, Judy Laterza. Ailes died in 2016, only a year after he was oustered from the network over a series of sexual harassment allegations.

While the book covers the rise of Ailes from his early childhood to the highest peak of success in the media, it would appear that this series will only focus on the rise and creation of Fox News, and seemingly his eventual downfall thanks to sexual harassment accusations and settlements that brought his part in the Fox News machine to an end.
