Ooh, interesting: Apple TV orders series on Booth manhunt.

This looks interesting:

Apple has ordered the limited series “Manhunt,” which tells the story of the hunt for U.S President Abraham Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth.

The series hails from Monica Beletsky and is based on the book “Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer” by James Swanson.

I’ve actually read Manhunt: from what I remember, it’s a pretty good book. Certainly the kind to lend itself to a dramatic retelling of the story, which is pretty much what you want out of a miniseries. And it’s not like actual events weren’t dramatic, from start to finish, either. I might actually make time to watch this.

  1. This is the first thing on apple tv to actually pique my interest. Still unlikely to get apple tv.

  2. It’s on Apple Tv you say – – – I can’t wait to find out how Chinese lesbians and quadriplegic escaped slaves were integral in hunting down those nasty nasty Southerners.
