Paul Bettany Speaks On "Manhunt: UNABOMBER"

"Manhunt: UNABOMBER" is an eight-episode drama about the real-life search for the mysterious individual who perpetrated a 17-year bombing campaign that killed three and injured 23. Ted Kaczynski, a.k.a. the Unabomber (Paul Bettany), was far from a regular criminal. He enrolled at Harvard at the age of 16, was subjected to cruel psychological experiments and became a Berkeley professor before retreating to Montana. There he lived without water and electricity and ultimately masterminded a crusade of terror against universities, airlines and others. Kaczynski vowed to stop only if his 35,000-word anti-technology manifesto was published. With the help of forensic linguistics employed by criminal profiler James “Fitz” Fitzgerald (Sam Worthington) and Ted’s brother, David (Mark Duplass), Kaczynski was ultimately arrested in 1996. Bettany comes by to speak on the series.
