Discovery’s New Scripted Series ‘Manhunt: Unabomber’ Premieres August 1

4 weeks ago by admin

Discovery’s all-new scripted series “Manhunt: UNABOMBER” tells the dramatic true story of the FBI’s hunt for the notorious Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski.

Sam Worthington (“Avatar”) stars as FBI Agent and Criminal Profiler Jim “Fitz” Fitzgerald, who’s centered in the story as the man pioneered the use of forensic linguistics to identify and ultimately capture the deadliest serial bomber in history, Ted Kaczynski, played by Paul Bettany (“Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers”). “As a fresh faced Criminal Profiler and the newest member of the Unabom Task Force (UTF), Fitz faced an uphill battle not just against the Unabomber – one of the most sophisticated and brilliant criminals in history – but also against the bureaucracy of the UTF itself as his maverick ideas and new approaches were dismissed by the system,” according the the Discovery press release.

Check out the sneak peek trailer of the new series below. The two-hour premiere of “Manhunt: UNABOMBER” is set to air on Tuesday, August 1 at 9 pm ET on the Discovery Channel.
