HBO, David Simon take on John Wilkes Booth Miniseries


Screenwriters David Simon (The Wire) and former collaborator Tom Fontana (Oz) are reteaming for an HBO miniseries adaptation of the James L. Swanson book Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer. Fontana had previously worked with Simon in helping him to adapt his book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets into the 1993 police drama for NBC. The Manhunt miniseries, set in 1865, will focus on the 12-day search for Abraham Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth, and the subsequent media frenzy. (Variety)
