Did competition between the FBI and CIA accidentally lead the way to the horrors of 9/11 and the war in Iraq? Based on the Pulitzer-Prize winning book of the same name, The Looming Tower investigates this possibility amongst the rising threat of Osama bin Laden and Al-Queda.

John O’Neill (Jeff Daniels), chief of the New York FBI’s Counter-Terrorism unit, believes that Al-Queda is planning an attack on the U.S. To prove this he finds himself fighting back against a lack of cooperation from other federal government departments, especially that from his equivalent at the combative CIA. Both departments begin a journey searching for answers and battling each other for ownership of the newly acquired information, even though they are working for the same result: preventing an imminent attack on U.S. soil.

 

Starring Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom), Tahar Rahim, Michael Stuhlbarg (The Shape of Water), Peter Sarsgaard (The Killing), Wrenn Schmidt (Person of Interest), Bill Camp (The Night Of). Alec Baldwin will have a recurring role as former CIA director George Tenet.
