Airdate: The Looming Tower

Anticipated new US drama The Looming Tower with Jeff Daniels and Alec Baldwin will debut in Australia on Amazon next week.

The 10 part 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 Academy Award-nominated writer Dan Futterman (Foxcatcher, Capote) and directed by Academy Award and Emmy Award-winning Director Alex Gibney (Going Clear: Scientology and The Prison of Belief, Taxi to the Dark Side, and We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks), the series stars Jeff Daniels, Tahar Rahim, Peter Sarsgaard, Bill Camp, Michael Stuhlbarg, Virginia Kull, Sullivan Jones, Wrenn Schmidt and Alec Baldwin.

Thursday March 1 on Amazon.

  1. Could you let me know where you get Amazon schedule info? I’ve had prime for 6 months at least – and have no idea when or what comes on. I mean, Mozart is on Stan despite being an Amazon Exclusive, and had to basically try my luck for Miss Maisel the day on release.

    And I mean, Looming Tower is a Hulu exclusive, so add another layer to my confusion 🙁
