These are the true stories of America’s most terrifying, thrilling and spectacular manhunts. Each one is a race against time to catch psycho killers on the loose, terrorists plotting hideous atrocities and hardened killers out on kidnap and murder sprees. It’s a series filled with sieges, kidnappings and explosions, chases, escapes and shootouts. The heroes are SWAT teams, special agents, ordinary cops and hostage negotiators.
At the heart of each film is WMR’s expertise in dramatic reconstruction. Interwoven seamlessly with the archive and the testimony, the films create the impression that we are on the shoulders of the SWAT teams as they move in for the kill. We are inside remote cabins with the terrified hostages, feeling their fear and eavesdropping in the command centre as the killers are tracked across the country.
