Boy in the Bunker

S1 E1
Oct 03, 2023
In 2013, Jimmy Lee Dykes shoots and kills a rural Alabama school bus driver and takes a five-year-old boy hostage in a carefully constructed bunker. The FBI discovers that the bunker is lined with explosives and Dykes is heavily armed. After a six day standoff, Dykes sets a deadline for the following day to broadcast his grievances on TV news, or he will kill the boy and himself. The FBI Hostage Rescue Team works with brilliant FBI profiler Molly Amman to extract a five-year-old boy from a bunker built by a heavily armed captor named Jimmy Lee Dykes. The profiler must convince FBI director Robert Muller that negotiations with the erratic Dykes are doomed to fail.
