Earlier today, we shared some news and a teaser for Alan Ball's upcoming Cinemax series Banshee. While we still have a couple of months to wait for that one to premiere, Cinemax has their next new series ready to go tomorrow night. Hunted follows a female spy who disappears after nearly getting killed and returns to work a year later, much to the surprise of her co-workers and secret boyfriend.
Produced for BBC One and Cinemax, Hunted comes from Frank Spitnitz and stars Melissa George as Sam Hunter, the mentioned operative who nearly died. You'll get a better sense of her situation in the description for the series premiere episode, which airs tomorrow night on Cinemax. Check that out below, along with the trailer...
Sort of a Bourne/Alias thing happening here, with an attractive young spy in the lead. The question of how she was almost killed and who is responsible lingered in the air, and it seems likely that this mystery will be a part of the driving force behind the series, in addition to Sam's work as an operative. It looks exciting, and could be one more reason to consider giving Cinemax a chance for those who don't already subscribe.
Here's the poster for the series, which premieres Friday, October 19 at 10:00 p.m. ET on Cinemax.
