According to Variety, the miniseries which is based on James Comey's bestselling book "A Higher Loyalty," will be aired as a two-part, four-hour series that will give viewers a peek at the "corridors of power."

The miniseries will kick off by taking a look at the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails and the Russians' interference in the 2016 Election Night that saw Donald emerge as POTUS.

The second part of the series would feature "virtual day-by-day" details about the Trump presidency's first few months and the intense relationship between James and Donald.

As regards celebrities dressing up like the President, People noted that Meryl Streep once rocked a "fat suit" and a blonde wig to play Donald's part at the Public Theater Gala.

Johnny Depp also impersonated the 77-year-old businessman in the trailer for "The Art of the Deal: The Movie." While many people laughed off the clip, others told the actor to the role as it was an "intriguing" one.
