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 drama to be released on Blu-ray™ and DVD September 18, 2018 by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.  Adapted from the best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Lawrence Wright, the series reveals the untold story of the September 11 attacks and how the secret rivalry between the FBI and the CIA may have inadvertently set a path for the tragedy to take place.  The series has received critical praise and features an all-star ensemble cast that includes Jeff Daniels (Godless, The Newsroom), Peter Sarsgaard (Wormwood, The Killing), Tahar Rahim (A Prophet), Michael Stuhlbarg (Call Me By Your Name, The Shape of Water), Bill Camp (The Night Of) and Wrenn Schmidt (Outcast, Person of Interest). Now consumers can own the thought-provoking drama in its entirety, plus all-new bonus content. The Blu-ray™ release will retail for $39.99 SRP and the DVD release will be available for $29.98 SRP. 

 The Looming Tower will also be available to own on Digital for the very first time via purchase from digital retailers on May 21, 2018, just 30 days after the series finale on Hulu. Consumers can enjoy all 10 episodes in high definition and standard definition (retail $24.99/$18.99) along with never-before-seen bonus content.

 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.

Jeff Daniels stars as I-49 Squad chief John O’Neill who faces a deliberate lack of cooperation from other intelligence organizations within the federal government, after he’s convinced the United States has been targeted for an attack by Al-Qaeda. His counterpart within the CIA, the frequently antagonistic Martin Schmidt (Peter Sarsgaard), assumes the CIA is the only government agency equipped to battle potential terror threats from abroad. He disobeys presidential orders and purposely keeps information from the FBI. Although the goal of both organizations is the same, preventing a terrorist attack from happening in the U.S., the competitive nature between the two agencies and their inability to work with one another, may have given Al-Qaeda operatives in the U.S. the opportunity to put their devastating plan in motion.

The series also stars Louis Cancelmi (Billions), Virginia Kull (Sneaky Pete), Ella Rae Peck (Feed the Beast), and Sullivan Jones. Alec Baldwin guest stars.

Produced by Legendary Television, The Looming Tower is executive produced by Oscar©-nominated writer Dan Futterman (In TreatmentA Mighty Heart, Capote), Oscar© and Emmy©-award-winning documentary filmmaker, and director Alex Gibney (Going Clear: Scientology & the Prison of Belief, Taxi to the Dark Side), Lawrence Wright (Going Clear: Scientology & the Prison of Belief, The Siege), Craig Zisk (Parks and Recreation, Brooklyn Nine Nine) and Adam Rapp (Vinyl, Flesh and Bone). The 10-episode limited drama series originally premiered on Hulu February 28, 2018.

The Looming Tower powerfully reenacts the extraordinary events leading into the devastating 9/11 terrorist attacks. Viewers will be gripped from the very start,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. She added, “Based on the best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and shot in multiple locations around the world, The Looming Tower is a political thriller consumers won’t want to miss. We are excited to offer this remarkable series on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital with exclusive bonus content to take consumers deeper into this true story and the making of the series.”
