Portland Home Team is so excited for our friend and past client, Ali Selim’s, latest work on The Looming Tower featured on Hulu. This Portland writer/director has an impressive resume, averaging 100+ director spots per year, creating his own production company, Departure Films, and awards from the New York Film Festival and the Cannes Film Festival.
The Looming Tower’s first three episodes were released last night (Weds. 2/28) and the rest are set to air in the first and second week of March. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Lawrence Wright, the drama miniseries is based on a chronical of events leading up to the September 11th terrorist attacks by tracing rising threats. The show also features some heavy-hitting actors including Jeff Daniels, Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Wrenn Schmidt to name a few.
Critics are raving, claiming Hulu’s political drama is “winning” the streaming game and is a show that actually has something to say. We’re certainly looking forward to binge-watching The Looming Tower this weekend and we recommend you check it out too!
It’s always exciting to support and hear the successes of Portlanders, and especially of past clients!
