The quality of television programs from places other than the traditional networks continues to be amazing. Coming from Hulu at the end of February is “The Looming Tower.” Check out the official synopsis and trailer and tell me you’re not even SLIGHTLY interested in this.
“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.”
The Looming Tower stars Jeff Daniels (John O’Neill), Peter Sarsgaard (Martin Schmidt), Alec Baldwin (George Tenet) and MORE.
