Monica Beletsky is the Executive Producer, creator and ShowRunner of Apple TV’s Manhunt which tells riveting story in the aftermath of the earth-shattering assassination of the 16th U.S. President. 

Watch it now !

“Manhunt” was created by Beletsky, adapted from James L. Swanson‘s book “Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer.” The part historical fiction, part conspiracy thriller follows Secretary of War Stanton’s search for John Wilkes Booth in the aftermath of President Abraham Lincoln‘s assassination while attending a play in the nation’s capital. Emmy winner Tobias Menzies (“The Crown”) stars as Stanton, whose tenacious search takes place against the backdrop of a nation in mourning, in the aftermath of the first American presidential assassination, and what would be uncovered as a larger conspiracy intended by Booth to revive the Confederate cause. 

Monica has been on staff for over 100 episodes of your favorite character ensemble dramas including three series listed in many critics’ best TV of the last decade lists. She is on an overall deal with AppleTV where she’s developing both limited & ongoing drama series. Monica was nominated for an Emmy with her colleagues on Fargo and also shares 2 WGA nominations with her FARGO & FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS colleagues. Beletsky has two features in development.
