Manhunt Series Trailer

“I was born with a chance to be somebody… I’m gonna be the most famous man in the whole world.” Apple TV has revealed an intriguing trailer for a conspiracy thriller series titled Manhunt, arriving for streaming in March next month. This is the astonishing story of the high-stakes hunt for John Wilkes Booth. Manhunt, a limited series, will be streaming on Apple TV+. We all know the story of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination in 1865 in Ford’s Theatre, but we haven’t ever really seen a good film or TV series about it before. Based on the bestselling & Edgar Award-winning nonfiction book also titled “Manhunt” by author James L. Swanson, Manhunt is a conspiracy thriller about one of the best known but least understood crimes in history, the astonishing story of the hunt for John Wilkes Booth in the aftermath of Lincoln’s assassination. But what is “misunderstood” about it? The 7-part limited series stars Emmy Award-winning actor Tobias Menzies as Edwin Stanton, the U.S. Attorney General at the time, with Anthony Boyle as John Wilkes Booth, Lovie Simone, Will Harrison, Brandon Flynn, Damian O’Hare, Glenn Morshower, Patton Oswalt, Matt Walsh, and Hamish Linklater. This looks like a well-made thriller about a disquieting true story.

Here’s the first official trailer (+ poster) for Monica Beletsky’s series Manhunt, from Apple TV’s YouTube:
