Hulu's The Looming Tower — Official Trailer


added: Thu, Jan 11th '18

Hulu's new original limited series has assembled a pretty impressive line-up of stars as it takes on a seriously heavy story about one of the most tragic events in American history -- the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Featuring a strong ensemble cast led by Jeff Daniels, Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Alec Baldwin, "The Looming Tower" is based on Lawrence Wright's Pulitzer Prize-winning 2006 investigative book, which takes an unflinching look at what the U.S. intelligence agencies knew or didn't know about Osama bin Laden prior to 9/11.

Executive produced and written by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Dan Futterman (Capote, Foxcatcher) and directed and executive produced by Oscar-winning documentarian Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side), "The Looming Tower" is also co-starring Tahara Rahim, Wrenn Schmidt, Bill Camp, and Virginia Kull.

The series will run for ten episodes, and is set to launch on February 28th, exclusively on Hulu.

The Looming Tower: Based on the Pulitzer-Prize winning book, The Looming Tower traces the rising threat of Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda in the late 1990s and how the rivalry between the FBI and CIA during that time may have inadvertently set the path for the tragedy of 9/11. The series follows members of the I-49 Squad in New York and Alec Station in Washington, D.C., the counter-terrorism divisions of the FBI and CIA, respectively, as they travel the world fighting for ownership of information while seemingly working toward the same goal - trying to prevent an imminent attack on U.S. soil.
