“This isn’t a war about one man, his people actually believe.” “Someday this administration will be remembered for the risks it didn’t take.” Divided we fail. ‘The Looming Tower’ is a new limited series that traces the rising threat of Osama Bin Laden and how the rivalry between the FBI and CIA may have inadvertently set a path for the tragedy of 9/11.
“You got a stash of intel that you refuse to share with my agents. You don’t know how many people might be in danger.” Tracing the rising threat of Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, the series takes a controversial look at how the rivalry between the two agencies might have set the stage for the 9/11 act of terrorism and the war in Iraq. “What I need you for is to figure out what happens next so we can stop it.”
“I really wish people would stop telling me to calm down, there are bombs going off across the world that doesn’t make me feel calm.” Based on the Pulitzer-Prize winning book, ‘The Looming Tower’ 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.
With a cast that includes: Sullivan Jones, Kelly P. Williams, Katie Flahive, Peter Sarsgaard, Alec Baldwin, Michael Stuhlbarg and Jeff Daniels ‘The Looming Tower’ limited series Premieres February 28, 2018 on Hulu.
