Hulu is reportedly nearing a straight-to-series order for an adaptation of Lawrence Wright’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 9/11-themed non-fiction novel “The Looming Tower”.
The tome chronicles the events that led to the September 11th 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City from the growing threat of Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida prior to 9/11, as well as the rivalry and lack of collaboration between the FBI and the CIA prior to the attack.
Wright, Dan Futterman (“Capote”), Alex Gibney (“Going Clear”) and Legendary Television are behind the project with a ten-episode pickup pickup being eyed. The series would premiere in 2017.
