Hunted Discussion: Premiere 1/22/17!

Hunted: Intense UK Reality Competition Series Gets US Version


Soon to join The Amazing Race and Survivor at CBS is the new reality competition series Hunted, as intense to watch as it is for the folks who go on the run to avoid being captured.

Reality shows aren’t usually my thing, unless we’re talking documentaries. But with Hunted, I am hooked, as are more than a million Britons who’ve tuned in to the first three episodes to date on Channel 4 in the UK.

Now CBS has ordered Shine TV’s Hunted for the US, which will be produced for the stateside network by Endemol Shine North America (Big Brother, The Biggest Loser).

Said Glenn Geller, President of CBS Entertainment, “It combines the suspense of a crime drama with the thrill of a competition reality series and some very topical social issues.”

In Hunted the contestants are fugitives trying to escape detection, while expert trackers and investigators manhunt them by any and all means available, from the traditional searches of homes and questioning of family and friends, to state-of-the-art digital technologies — including mobile phones, debit/credit cards, and social media with their built-in tracking mechanisms — that allow the hunters to locate the hunted.

For the contestants, dispensing with life as they know it while being on the run, trying to avoid being captured, is more difficult than they could have imagined. Not just on the physical level, but on the mental and emotional, as well. As in paranoia, panic, loneliness.

And even though there are far fewer CCTV cameras in the US than Britain, the trackers have ways to find the fugitives, because the latter leave physical and/or electronic footprints just about everywhere they go, from practically everything they do.

So what does it take to slip through the cracks and go undetected for a month in a country where surveillance is nearly everywhere, all while still abiding by the law? That is the question posed by Hunted, and it is up to the show’s fugitives to find out.

CBS will announce further details about Hunted in the near future.

I really need to watch the UK version! The adverts made it look intense.

I think it's ended. Only 6 episodes, I wanna watch more!  :lol:

Show content
Steve and Martin didn't have a lot of struggle, which is very good! And looking at their 28-day route, it's even more impressive!

But definitely Emily and Lauren were the most fun to watch! I couldn't help but cheer when they finally reunited! I thought it could have been anticlimactic that they all had only one escape point, since Emily had given away the location. At least, as a viewer, they didn't get all caught  :hearts:

The concept of this is definitely interesting, especially watching how the hunters track and seek information of the fugitives, to the point that it seems stalker-creepy at times!  :lol:

I wonder what did Ben Owen and all the other Hunters do after that. They MUST have met the successful fugitives, since it's just a "game" and probably a sort of practice for the investigators. Having said that, I do hope all the fugitives are ok. I know they signed up for it, but I really cannot picture myself doing those kinds of stuff. I'd lose my marbles! Paranoia-wise, it feels like this is harder than Survivor, because here you potentially have no friends (so I suspect they've become close to their cameramen :lol: ).

My favourite moments are: Emily going all the way from North I think back to her son iirc within a day all through hitchhiking, and still escaping; Emily exchanging jackets with a homeless person, which just puts a smile on my face; the newlyweds' cheeky postcard; the random capture of the pair that disguised themselves and had those deck of cards (can't remember their names); and some Ricky Allen moments.

Currently watching the first UK season and I think the concept of the show is AMAZING! It's intense as a viewer so the level of paranoia the contestants must have been constantly under is unimaginable.

Did the US version of the show ever take off? I can't seem to put my hand on it.

HUNTED

 HUNTED follows nine teams of two in a real-life manhunt as they attempt the nearly impossible task of disappearing in today’s vast digital world as highly skilled investigators combine state-of-the-art tracking methods with traditional tactics to pursue and catch them. From searching their targets’ homes and scouring their internet and cell phone histories, to identifying behavioral patterns, Hunters in the field and Command Center investigators work together to identify clues to potential hiding places and collaborators that can ultimately lead to capture. Will the anxiety of being fugitives on the run cause teams to make a critical error, or will they be able to stay off the grid long enough to avoid being found within 100,000 square miles of the southeastern United States? A grand prize of $250,000 will be awarded to each team that successfully evades being caught for up to 28 days.     

Premieres Sunday, Jan. 22, 2017 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/7:00-8:00 PM, PT – time is approximate after post-game coverage of the AFC Championship game) on the CBS Television Network.  The series moves to Wednesdays on Jan. 25, 2017, with a special two-hour episode, 8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT. In subsequent weeks, it will air 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT.

 EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS: Laura Fuest Silva, Brian Catalina, Eden Gaha, Rob Smith and Robin Feinberg

 PRODUCED BY: Endemol Shine North America

 FORMAT CREATED BY: Shine TV Ltd.

The trailer makes it look very promising. If this turns out to be a success for CBS I definitely think we could see it join the reality hotshots. There is a level of adrenaline and exhilaration this show provides that goes beyond the likes of TAR/Big Brother. Can't wait to tune in!

We are also due eight episodes (which is great considering how the UK one is so tight with only 6 and has way less teams while this has more!)



Episode One is a TWO HOUR premiere (which could also be changed because it would mean 10 PM - 12 AM  :escape) on Sunday while Episodes Two-Three will both air on the following Wednesday, and then its all just Wednesdays from there.
