The new trailer for Showtime's forthcoming limited series, The Loudest Voice, is out today.

The series centers around the life of Fox's Roger Ailes, played by Russell Crowe, and the last decade of his life. In the trailer, Crowe is completely unrecognizable, decked out in skillful prosthetic makeup. The clip portrays Ailes –– who died a year after being ousted due to allegations of sexual assault –– as a man who is unwilling to let anything get in his way. Crowe asserts, "We're going to give a vision of the world the way they want it to be" and "We're way past politics. It's war."

The credits flash the mainstays of the star-studded cast: Naomi Watts as Gretchen Carlson, Sienna Miller as Elizabeth Ailes, and Seth MacFarlane as Brian Lewis, among others.

The limited series is based on Gabriel Sherman's book The Loudest Voice.

The show will run in seven episodes and premiere on Showtime on June 30th. Watch the trailer below.
