With a hell of a cast and team behind it, it feels like The Looming Tower is your next ‘must-watch’ drama that’s coming exclusively to Amazon Prime Video from 1st March, followed by new episodes weekly for seven weeks.
Starring Jeff Daniels and Alec Baldwin, the 10-episode season is based on the Pulitzer Prize winning exposé of the same name by Lawrence Wright. The Looming Tower traces the rising threat of Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, and takes a controversial look at how the rivalry between the CIA and FBI may have inadvertently set the stage for the tragedy of 9/11 and the war in Iraq.
Adapted for television by Foxcatcher and Capote writer Dan Futterman and directed Alex Gibney (Going Clear: Scientology and We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks), the series stars Daniels, Tahar Rahim, Peter Sarsgaard, Bill Camp, Michael Stuhlbarg, Virginia Kull, Sullivan Jones, Wrenn Schmidt and Baldwin.
