In today’s politically charged media landscape, no figure looms larger, even after his passing, than Roger Ailes, who molded Fox News into a force that irrevocably changed the conversation about the highest levels of government. To understand the events that led to the rise of the modern Republican Party, one must understand Ailes. The upcoming limited series takes on that challenge, focusing primarily on the past decade in which Ailes arguably became the Republican Party’s de facto leader, while also touching on defining events in Ailes’ life, including his experiences with world leaders that gave birth to Ailes’ political career and the sexual harassment accusations and settlements that brought his Fox News reign to an end. The series aims to shed light on the psychology that drives the political process from the top down.
The first episode of the limited series was written by Oscar winner Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) and Sherman. The project is a co-production from SHOWTIME and Blumhouse Television (Sharp Objects, The Jinx, Get Out). In addition to Crowe, McCarthy serves as executive producer with Alex Metcalf and Emmy winner Jason Blum, as well as Marci Wiseman and Jeremy Gold for Blumhouse Television, Liza Chasin of 3dot Productions, Kari Skogland and Padraic McKinley.
The new Showtime 's seven episode series will premiere its first episode on June 30, 2019 at 10:00PM/ET/PT on Showtime.
