Showtime is training its spotlight on one of the biggest media figures of the 21st century: Fox News founder Roger Ailes.

The premium cable network is in production on a limited series called The Loudest Voice, which will focus primarily on the last decade of Ailes’ life, his influence on U.S. politics and the sexual harassment scandal that led to his ouster.

The star-studded cast is headed by Russell Crowe and Naomi Watts. Bookmark this page for developments on the series, and see below for the cast and their real-life counterparts.

The Team

The Loudest Voice is based on Gabriel Sherman’s best-selling book The Loudest Voice in the Room, which grew out of his reporting on Ailes and Fox News for New York magazine and for which he interviewed more than 600 people.

Sherman co-wrote the first episode with showrunner Tom McCarthy (Spotlight). The Showtime/Blumhouse Television production is executive produced by Crowe, McCarthy, Jason Blum, Alex Metcalf, Marci Wiseman, Jeremy Gold, Liza Chasin and Kari Skogland, who is directing the first two episodes.
