A trailer has been released for Hulu's new drama The Looming Tower, based on Lawrence Wright's Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11. Deadline reported that the limited series from Legendary Television stars Jeff Daniels "as John O'Neill, the determined, at times bull-headed chief of the New York FBI's Counter-Terrorism unit. He is rightly convinced that the U.S. has been targeted for attack by Al-Qaeda but faces deliberately insufficient cooperation from other organs of the federal government, particularly from his counterpart at the frequently antagonistic CIA."
The cast also includes Tahar Rahim, Wrenn Schmidt, Bill Camp, Louis Cancelmi, Virginia Kull, Ella Rae Peck, Sullivan Jones, Michael Stuhlbarg and Peter Sarsgaard. Premiering February 28 on Hulu, The Looming Tower is executive produced by showrunner Dan Futterman, Alex Gibney, Lawrence Wright, Craig Zisk and Adam Rapp.
