Carla Gugino has been set as the female lead opposite Jack Huston and Cameron Britton in the second season of anthology series “Manhunt” for Spectrum Originals and Lionsgate Television.
Charter Communications last year made a deal for new seasons of the series which began with “Manhunt: Unabomber” on Discovery Channel. ‘Lone Wolf’ will chronicle one of the largest and most complex manhunts on U.S. soil – the search for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics Bomber Eric Rudolph (Huston) and the media firestorm that consumed the life of Richard Jewell (Britton) in its wake.
Gugino will play Kathy Scruggs, a hard-drinking, tough-talking crime reporter for Atlanta’s biggest daily newspaper who gets the once-in-a-lifetime scoop that Richard Jewell may be the bomber.
Breaking the biggest story in the world makes a Kathy a sensation – but her life unravels as evidence starts pointing against it being the truth. Gugino is coming off raves for her work in “The Haunting Of Hill House” and will next be seen in Cinemax’s new series “Jett” on June 14th. She will shortly film “Gunpowder Milkshake” in Berlin.
