The miniseries will take viewers behind closed doors at the CIA, the FBI and the White House and into the world of Richard Clarke, Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney, Sandy Berger and CIA Director George Tenet, among others.
Viewers will follow the international manhunt for elusive bomber Ramzi Yousef (Nabile Elouahabi, "Eastenders") and meet several key players in the 9/11 saga, including: John O'Neill, the career FBI agent who spent years zealously chasing Bin Laden; then-ABC newsman John Miller (portrayed by Barclay Hope, "Stargate SG-1") who interviewed Bin Laden; Emad Salem and other key Muslim informants who aided the U.S.; and Ahmed Shah Massoud, commander of the Northern Alliance, a crucial American ally and the person Bin Laden feared most.
Directed by David L. Cunningham("To End All Wars"), the project stars acclaimed actor and Oscar nominee Harvey Keitel ("Pulp Fiction," "The Piano") as FBI agent, John O'Neill, an expert on al Qaeda and on Osama Bin Laden at the time of the attacks.
