DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, February 2017) Discovery Channel announced that three-time Tony Award nominee Brian d'Arcy James ("Hamilton," "Spotlight," "13 Reasons Why"), Trieste Kelly Dunn ("Blindspot," "Banshee") and Elizabeth Reaser ("Mad Men" and "Young Adult") have been cast in the network's upcoming scripted series now titled "Manhunt: The UNABOMer," formerly known as "Manifesto," set to air this year. Produced by John Goldwyn, serving as consultant to Discovery, Lionsgate, Trigger Street Productions and Discovery Channel, the anthology series tells the story about the hunt for Ted Kaczynski, who terrified the nation with a letter bombing campaign in the 1980s and early 1990s. The new title reflects the name given by the original task force created by the FBI and ATF to investigate the "UNABOM" case, a combination of the words "University" and "Airline BOMber." The series will tell the story of how FBI agent Jim "Fitz" Fitzgerald (Sam Worthington, "Avatar," "Hacksaw Ridge") deployed a radical approach to intelligence gathering to take down Kaczynski, portrayed by Paul Bettany ("Gangster No. 1," "Captain America: Civil War"). Emmy(R) Award-winning television producer and director Greg Yaitanes ("Quarry," "Banshee") will executive produce, direct and serve as showrunner. Andrew Sodroski, whose "Holland, Michigan" topped Hollywood's famed Black List for screenplays in 2013, created the series and serves as an Executive Producer. Jim Fitzgerald will serve as Consulting Producer.
