CBS has ordered a new reality series in which participants outrun highly skilled investigators tracking them on a nationwide manhunt.
The show, titled Hunted, is based on a hit U.K. series of the same name.

Hunted follows ordinary people who attempt to disappear, which is easier said than done in today’s digital age, investigators use state-of-the-art tracking devices to locate them. Participants’ behavioural patterns and cell phone histories will guide the trackers, who will also use traditional manhunt tactics to find their target’s precise location.
“Hunted is a compelling new alternative series format, which our Alternative department had been tracking for a while, that feels tailor-made for CBS,” Glenn Geller, President, CBS Entertainment, says. “It combines the suspense of a crime drama with the thrill of a competition reality series and some very topical social issues.”;
