The drama - based on Gabriel Sherman's book of the same name - will look at how Ailes turned Fox into a media giant which shaped the course of American politics. The series also stars Sienna Miller as Ailes' wife Elizabeth, Seth MacFarlane as former Fox News PR chief Brian Lewis, Simon McBurney (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) as News Corp leader Rupert Murdoch, Annabelle Wallis (Peaky Blinders) as former Fox News booker Laurie Luhn and Aleksa Palladino (Boardwalk Empire) as Ailes' longtime assistant Judy Laterza. First we had Christian Bale's turn as Dick Cheney in the Oscar-nominated Vice, and now we've got Our Rusty doing his bit as Roger Ailes the abrasive king of Fox News.

The first episode of the series was written by Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) and Sherman, and the show is a co-production between Showtime and Blumhouse Television.

The official description for the series reads: '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'.

Carlson, 52, was the first - filing a lawsuit on July 6, 2016 claiming sexual harassment and accusing him of firing her after she rejected his advances. As it was previously reported, Ailes had to resign as CEO and chairman of the company after he was accused of harassing women. The movie also touches on the sexual harassment allegations against Mr. Roger, including how he supposedly touched Gretchen Carlson on the hips.

Several other women came forward at a later date, including on the 18th of May, 2017. Charlize Theron will also have a role.

There are more projects coming up about ex-boss at Fox News.
