A new limited series based on “the world’s most elusive terrorist” is coming to Showtime.

Based on the manhunt for military chief and founding member of the Lebanon Islamic Jihad Organization, Imad Mughniyeh, the spy series Ghosts of Beirut will premiere Sunday, May 21 at 10/9c (and make its streaming/on demand debut two days earlier, on Friday, May 19).

The series — from Fauda creators Avi Issacharoff and Lior Raz — reveals “the origins of 21-year old Mughniyeh (also known as ‘The Ghost’) who emerged from obscurity and was responsible for more American deaths than any other individual prior to 9/11. Told from the American, Israeli and Lebanese perspectives, the series traces Mughniyeah’s origins from the Shiite slums of South Beirut to his masterminding of the concept of suicide bombers, a deadly tactic that led to his swift rise as the world’s most dangerous terrorist,” reads the official synopsis.

Ghosts of Beirut stars Dina Shihabi (Archive 81), Dermot Mulroney (Hanna), Garret Dillahunt (Fear the Walking Dead) and Ravi Gavron (Godfather of Harlem), among others
