“Hey, you’re on the run!” That’s what someone yells to a couple casually strolling down the street… who then proceed to turn and sprint to God knows where! Why? Because they are being hunted! And why are they being hunted? Because they are among the nine sets of citizens turned imaginary fugitives as part of CBS’ new manhunt show titled — you guessed it — Hunted.
Premiering Jan. 22 after the AFC championship game (and then moving to its regular Wednesday at 8 p.m. slot on Jan. 25) Hunted has experts from the FBI, CIA, U.S. Marshal Service, and Navy Seals trying to track down contestants hiding within 100,000 square miles of the southeastern United States. Any team of two that evades capture for up to 28 days wins $250,000.
That’s all fine and good, but we just want to watch people freaking out as drones hover overhead and as any and every ounce of privacy they once enjoyed is thoroughly invaded. Now that’s the good stuff. And you can get your first extended look at the show right here with the exclusive trailer above. All I know is that someone says, “If this works out they are going to be defeated by a No. 2 pencil.” Lord, how I hope it works out.
