What would happen if we let fugitives out into the world? A new new competition series that is! CBS has created “Hunted,” and it follows 9 teams of 2 as they avoid captivity and compete for $250,000.
The game takes place over 28 days as skilled investigators use state-of-the-art tracking devices as well as old school tactics to hunt down the fugitives. But those fugitives are actually Average Joe’s using their own tactics to evade the authorities.
The fugitives may be “fugitives,” but the host of the show is very much the real deal. Robert Clark, of Youngstown, Ohio, is an ex FBI agent.
“My second day was 9/11 and I was in Washington, D.C., and I got to witness not only the world change, but the FBI change as well,” said Clark.
So this show is going to be good! Check out the trailer below.
“Hunted” premieres after the NFL’s AFC Championship game, tomorrow Sunday, January 22 at 10-11 p.m. ET. It will then move to Wednesdays starting on January 25 with a special two-hour episode at 8 p.m. ET, on CBS.
