It was recently announced that CBS has ordered Hunted, a new one-hour alternative series where people participate in a nationwide manhunt and are challenged to run from some of the world’s most highly skilled investigators. The new series, which is already a hit in the UK, will be produced by Endemol Shine North America.

"Hunted is a compelling new alternative series format, which our Alternative department had been tracking for a while, that feels tailor-made for CBS," said Glenn Geller, President of 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 premise of Hunted is as follows:

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.

You can run, but can you hide—especially when you're Hunted?
