On an extraordinary episode of After Hours AM/The Criminal Code — True Crime Wednesdays with hosts Joel Sturgis, Eric Olsen, and secret weapon, forensic psychologist Dr. Clarissa Cole — we examine one of the most fascinating criminal cases in U.S. history with director and exec producer of Discovery’s scripted Manhunt UNABOMBER series, Greg Yaitanes. Greg will join us at 10pE; at 9pE Clarissa leads us through the week’s most alarming and entertaining True Crime news.

Manhunt UNABOMBER tells the dramatic and gripping true story of the FBI’s hunt for the Unabomber. The story focuses on FBI Agent and Criminal Profiler Jim “Fitz” Fitzgerald (Sam Worthington), who pioneered the use of forensic linguistics to identify and ultimately capture the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski (Paul Bettany).

The all-star cast also includes Chris Noth as Don Ackerman, the Bay Area Divisional Head of the FBI, who supervises the UNABOM Task Force; Oscar nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes as Tabby, a street agent who partners with Fitz; Jane Lynch in the role of former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno; Mark Duplass as David Kaczynski, Ted’s younger brother; Mich
