Hulu recently released the trailer for its upcoming show “The Looming Tower.”
The streaming network’s description for the show, according to the YouTube description is:
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. Premieres February 28, only on Hulu.
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 trailer shows the CIA and FBI as they hunt for the evil terrorist responsible for the deaths of thousands of individuals around the world.
The trailer really doesn’t look like it’s going to do a lot of favors to former President Bill Clinton.
The whole setup looks like the show is going to place a hefty blame on him for not taking out Bin Laden during his presidency.
Judging from the trailer, I think this show is going to be rock solid entertainment. Jeff Daniels is as good as they come in terms of acting ability. He’s a generational talent, and should crush it as a federal agent.
You can catch “The Looming Tower” when it’s released February 28.
