Storyline

Manhunt: Unabomber (formerly known as "Manifesto") will explore how the FBI caught infamous criminal masterminds, with each closed-ended season following a different case. The first season will focus on the FBI agent, a highly specialized linguist, who using unconventional means brought Ted Kaczynski, aka the "Unabomber", to justice after nearly a 20-year manhunt. The show, said to be heavily serialized and darkly psychological in the vein of True Detective,would provide insight into the criminal and the case but also the psychological effects the cases have on the FBI agents assigned to hunt down the most dangerous criminals who often delve into a kind of madness of their own, becoming totally absorbed in the crimes and forced to live inside the darkest minds imaginable for years.

User Reviews

 
Interesting, but I think these show will be better explained by Unabomber's POV.
11 August 2017 | by bola_de_puSee all my reviews

Not bad, not bad at all, in my opinion Bettany and Worthington will be Academy Award winners if these show was produced by HBO or another famous trademark. First of all, if you're looking to see desperate violence, gunshots, fights and "flashy violence" these isn't a show for you.Is a thriller, a psychological one, between "The Unabomber" and "Fitz", and the bureaucratic processes in the government agencies that can delay investigations like this. The show have a really slow pace, but it comes alive thanks to the performances of the principal and secondary characters. Will see how the producers develop these show, but the first three episodes are good enough to give these show a chance. Hope ends well.
