Despite their past (and well-deserved) reputation of being the purveyors of less-than respectable midnight fare, Cinemax has started to put together a most excellent action-oriented line-up. Their first real big pick-up was “Strike Back”, which is a really great, Internationally-flavored action show. They’ll soon be adding a TV version of “The Transporter” to their line-up, and later in 2012, Melissa George will be channeling her “Alias” days on “Hunted”, a new spy-action series. Get your first look at the show by way of a slick promo teaser trailer below.
Meet Sam. A spy. A hunter. And herself hunted by an enemy more ruthless and determined than any she’s ever known. Sam has been running from her past her entire life but when she returns to Byzantium, the organisation that employs her, and begins to pursue her pursuer, she will discover the only way to escape that past… is to confront it. This is the story of a spy with a bull’s eye on her back, a human target unable to trust anyone at any time, even the man she loves. She is, quite literally, running for her life. Hunted is a smart, complex and contemporary spy series.
The cast also includes Dhaffer L’Abidine, Manjinder Virk, Peter Vollebregt, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Stephen Campbell Moore, and Stephen Dillane.
The hunt begins October 26th on Cinemax.
