The 1996 capture and conviction of Kaczynski is one of many
events that occurred during Reno’s tenure at the Department of Justice.
Nominated in 1993 by President Bill Clinton, Reno became the first female U.S. attorney
general and was the second-longest person to serve in the post. Lynch’s
portrayal of Reno comes nearly one year after the lawyer died on Nov. 7, 2016
at 78 years old.
Manhunt: Unabomber was created by Andrew Sodroski
with director Greg Yaitanes serving as showrunner. The eight-episode season’s A-list
cast also includes Chris Noth as UNABOM Task Force supervisor Don Ackerman,
Keisha Castle-Hughes as Tabby, Mark Duplass as Ted’s younger brother, David, Hamilton’s
Brian d’Arcy James as Harvard professor Henry Murray and Elizabeth Reaser as
Fitzgerald’s wife, Ellie. (Reaser is also set to portray Deputy District
Attorney Pam Bozanich in True Crime’s debut season, The Menendez Murders.)
