CBS Television Studios announced a key cast addition to its drama project that’s in the works based on former FBI Director James Comey’s New York Times No. 1 bestselling book “A Higher Loyalty.” Academy Award and Emmy Award-winning actress Holly Hunter will play Acting Attorney General Sally Yates in the four-hour event miniseries.
Hunter joins previously announced cast members including multiple Emmy winner Jeff Daniels as Comey, Emmy winner Brendan Gleeson as Donald Trump, Michael Kelly as Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe and multiple Tony winner Jennifer Ehle as Comey’s wife, Patrice.
The project is scheduled to begin production next month. It was adapted for television and will be directed by Oscar nominee Billy Ray, and is executive produced by Alex Kurtzman, Shane Salerno and Heather Kadin.
