Deadline is exclusively reporting that Arliss Howard, Desmond Harrington, Kelly Jenrette and Ness Bautista are the latest names to join the cast of Spectrum Originals’ anthology series Manhunt, with the second season titled Manhunt: Lone Wolf.
Manhunt: Lone Wolf will chronicle one of the largest and most complex manhunts on U.S soil, the search for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics Bomber, and the media firestorm that consumed the life of Richard Jewell in its wake.
Arliss Howard (whose credits include True Blood and Concussion) will be playing the role of Earl Embry, the top bomb expert in the ATF who has a depth of hands-on knowledge that nobody can rival. He is determined to catch the Olympic bomber, despite the best efforts of the FBI to chase Embry off the case.
Desmond Harrington (whose credits include Dexter and Sneaky Pete) will be playing the role of Louis Freeh, the hard-charging head of the FBI who steered the Bureau through turbulent political waters with a combination of toughness, media savvy and iron-fisted loyalty.
Kelly Jenrette (whose credits include The Handmaid’s Tale and Limetown) will be playing the role of Stacey Knox, an FBI Supervisory Special Agent and Brennan’s partner, who is second in command of the FBI team sent to take point in the Atlanta bombing.
Ness Bautista (whose credits include Sense8 and The Last Ship) will be playing the role of Joe Holliwell, Embry’s partner and an ATF “lab rat” with a PhD in Chemistry who soaks up Embry’s hard-earned wisdom.
The second season is being handled by the core creative team behind the first season, Manhunt: Unabomber, being written by Andrew Sodroski, who will be executive producing alongside John Goldwyn and Michael Dinner.
