Manhunt: UNABOMBER tells the dramatic and gripping true story of the FBI's hunt for the Unabomber, a serial bomber who terrorised the United States for decades.

The story focuses on FBI Agent and criminal profiler Jim "Fitz" Fitzgerald (played by Sam Worthington), who pioneered the use of forensic linguistics to identify and ultimately capture the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski (Paul Bettany).

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 criminals in history - but also against the bureaucracy of the UTF itself as his maverick ideas and new approaches were dismissed by the system.

This critically acclaimed eight-part series also stars Chris Noth, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Mark Duplass, Brian d'Arcy James, Elizabeth Reaser, and Jane Lynch.
