Rebecca Henderson (Mistress America) joins Discovery Channel’s upcoming FBI crime drama Manhunt: Unabomber (formerly titled Manifesto), from John Goldwyn, serving as consultant to Discovery, Lionsgate, Discovery Channel and Trigger Street Productions. The anthology series tells the story about the hunt for Ted Kaczynski, who terrified the nation with a letter bombing campaign in the 1980s and early 1990s. Henderson will play Judy Clarke, Ted’s defense attorney and the object of Ted’s affection. Judy is a seasoned and savvy defense attorney who has made a career of defending high-profile death-penalty cases. She’ll do whatever it takes to save her client from lethal injection — whether he’s the Unabomber or not. Henderson’s credits include feature Mistress America and a guest-starring role on Rectify. She’s repped by Framework Entertainment.
