Russell Crowe wants to "rebuild America from the ground up" in the new official teaser for "The Loudest Voice," Showtime's new mini-series about the rise and fall of controversial Fox News chief Roger Ailes.

The seven-episode drama is based on journalist Gabriel Sherman's best-selling book "The Loudest Voice In The Room," which chronicles Ailes' career from his years as a cunning political consultant who is hired to turn the Fox news network into a ratings giant to the later years of his widely publicized sexual harassment scandal that included an eye-opening lawsuit with Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson, portrayed in the series by Naomi Watts.

The limited drama also stars Simon McBurney as Fox tycoon Rupert Murdoch; Sienna Miller as Roger's wife, Beth Ailes; Seth MacFarlane as Ailes' right-hand man, Fox executive Brian Lewis, and Annabelle Wallis as Fox News booker Laurie Luhn.

"The Loudest Voice" premieres Sunday, June 30th on Showtime.

synopsis:
In today's politically charged media landscape, no figure looms larger, even after his passing, than Roger Ailes, molding 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 Donald Trump, one must understand Ailes.

Based on extensive reporting by Gabriel Sherman for his bestselling book, "The Loudest Voice In The Room," 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 an initial meeting with Richard Nixon on the set of The Mike Douglas Show that gave birth to Ailes' political career and including the sexual harassment accusations and settlements that brought his Fox News reign to an end.

Told through multiple points of view, the limited series aims to shed light on the psychology that drives the political process from the top down.
