StarzPlay lands UK rights for Manhunt: Deadly Games

Even though the first series of anthology series, Manhunt, appeared on both Discovery and Netflix, series two of the true crime-based drama will return thanks to StarzPlay in the UK.

Manhunt is an anthology series exploring various high profile manhunts conducted by the FBI.

The first series – subtitled Unabomber – won widespread acclaim.

Now, the second series, called Deadly Games, will chronicle one of the largest and most complex manhunts on US soil, after a deadly terrorist attack at the 1996 Olympic Games.

Here’s a trailer:

FBI agents hunt for an elusive serial bomber, Eric Rudolph, while a wrongly-accused innocent man, Richard Jewell, battles the FBI, the national news media, as well as his own inner demons, to prove his innocence and clear his name.

Look out for stars Cameron Britton (who appeared so brilliantly in Mindhunter), Carla Gugino and Jack Huston.

All 10 of the episodes will be available to stream on StarzPlay – which you can access via Amazon Prime – from April 23rd.
