How long would you last on your own with investigators on your trail? CBS has just greenlit Hunted, an alternative series that attempts to answer that very question. The one hour show, based on a UK series that recently debuted to strong numbers, will allow participants to put their survival skills to the test by staying ahead of skilled investigators.

Details on how to apply for season one will be released soon.

Hunted is a compelling new alternative series format, which our Alternative department had been tracking for a while, that feels tailor-made for CBS,” stated Glenn Geller, President, CBS Entertainment. “It combines the suspense of a crime drama with the thrill of a competition reality series and some very topical social issues.”

The Plot:

Hunted follows ordinary people attempting the nearly impossible task of disappearing in today’s vast digital world, as professional investigators combine state-of-the-art tracking methods with traditional tactics to narrow down the search area. From searching their target’s home and scouring Internet and cell phone histories to identifying behavioral patterns, they look for clues to potential hiding places and collaborators that can ultimately lead to capture.
