HBO announced the HBO Film “Brexit” starring Benedict Cumberbatch debuts January 19th. Cumberbatch stars as Dominic Cummings, who spearheaded the Vote Leave campaign.

“The result of the Brexit referendum in summer 2016 caused a political earthquake that laid waste to the normally stable British establishment and sent political tremors around the world,” says the HBO press release. “This provocative feature-length drama goes behind the scenes, revealing the personalities, strategies and feuds of the Leave and Remain campaigns. The tactics employed by Vote Leave during the data-driven campaign swayed a historically silent voting bloc that would ultimately decide the outcome of the referendum, as well as affecting future elections around the world.”

HBO Films “Brexit” premieres Saturday, January 19 at 9pm ET on HBO. Check out the preview trailer for “Brexit” below.
