Los Angeles, Calif. (January 18, 2020) – The hunt is on as Charter Communications’ premium content initiative, Spectrum Originals, launches MANHUNT: DEADLY GAMES on Monday, February 3. All ten episodes of the one-hour anthology series from Lionsgate Television will drop ad-free exclusively on Spectrum’s On Demand platform.
After a deadly terrorist attack at the 1996 Olympic Games, MANHUNT: DEADLY GAMES chronicles one of the largest and most complex manhunts on U.S. soil. FBI agents hunt for an elusive serial bomber, Eric Rudolph (Jack Huston), while a wrongly-accused innocent man, Richard Jewell (Cameron Britton), battles the FBI, the national news media, as well as his own inner demons, to prove his innocence and clear his name.
Creator and writer Andrew Sodroski is executive producing along with John Goldwyn and Michael Dinner. The series also stars Gethin Anthony (Jack Brennan), Carla Gugino (Kathy Scruggs), Arliss Howard (Earl Embry), Kelly Jenrette (Stacey Knox) and Judith Light (Bobi Jewell). Michael Dinner serves as the director. The series is co-produced by Lionsgate and Spectrum for Spectrum Originals.
