A série conta a história do agente do FBI Jim “Fitz” Fitzgerald (Sam Worthington), que participou da força-tarefa Unabom e precisou combater a burocracia da instituição enquanto trabalhava na caça de Theodore Kaczynski, também conhecido como Unabomber (Paul Bettany). Seu trabalho levou à captura de Kaczynski 17 anos depois de seu primeiro bombardeio em 1978.
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.
