As Manhunt: Deadly Games’ makes painfully clear, the FBI is an imperfect institution. As the show’s two main field agents, Gethin Anthony and Kelly Jenrette set about taking their director’s orders to make an airtight case against Richard Jewell for the Atlanta Olympic bombing only to find out there’s little evidence that he actually committed the crime. All the while, they’re also trying to capture actual bomber Eric Rudolph as he holes up in some dense North Carolina woods. It’s a scenario that gave Anthony and Jenrette lots of perspective into the case, and into what the FBI must have been up against at the time. The A.V. Club talked to them about that, as well as what they would like to say to the late Richard Jewell.
