NBC Plans Anthology Series “Manhunt”

NBC has given out a ten-episode order to Universal Television’s anthology drama series “Manhunt”.

Gavin Hood (“Tsotsi,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) will direct the first season which deals with the mounting tension of an entire city on the hunt for a fugitive roaming the streets.

Each season will examine the moment an American or international city becomes a police state or a war zone, and the violent consequences that ensue.

Whit Brayton and Zack Rice will pen the scripts and executive produce. Hood, Michael Sugar, Alex Goldstone and Nicole Romano will also executive produce.

Dustin Hoffman and Casey Affleck were reportedly at one point attached to star but that is no longer the case. No other cast is in negotiations at this time.

Like other anthology series (“True Detective,” “Fargo,” “American Horror Story”) it’s expected to reboot itself each season.
