The events that led to the deadliest terrorist attacks ever to take place on American soil are chronicled on The Looming Tower, the powerful 10-part television drama that was originally seen on Hulu this past February.

Adapted from the best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Lawrence Wright, The Looming Tower traces the rising threat of Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda in the late 1990s and how at the time, the FBI and the CIA 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 terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

The limited-run series stars Jeff Daniels (HBO’s The Newsroom), Peter Sarsgaard (Blue Jasmine), Tahar Rahim (A Prophet) and Michael Stuhlbarg (Call Me By Your Name).
