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.

Intense, brilliantly performed, and riveting.
2 August 2017 | by laracall-1See all my reviews

Intense, brilliantly performed, and riveting account of the hunt for fractured genius Ted Kaczynski, America's most notorious bomber. Highly recommended for those who love gritty, well-crafted drama, as well as anyone with an interest in the darker side of American history.

Paul Bettany's portrayal of the serial killer is pitch-perfect and utterly chilling; not least because, as his motivations and manifesto are revealed, there is no small measure of validity in his perspective (the double tragedy of the Unabomber is both the horror he inflicted on his victims, and the loss to society of an incredible mind that could have contributed so much).

Though Bettany undeniably steals the show, 'Manhunt: Unabomber' boasts a very strong supporting cast, notably the wonderful Brian d'Arcy James, among others. Sam Worthington is sympathetic and convincing as Fitz, the beleaguered FBI agent caught in a battle of wills and wits with a bona fide evil genius. Ultimately, it's the stuff of nightmares (and Emmy awards). The Discovery Channel has just moved up into a new league of television.
