We love spies and spy shows. We especially love spies and spy shows that feature kick-ass lead characters played by actresses we really like (who also happen to be hot).
The upcoming BBC spy show Hunted has all of those elements, and more. Written and directed by Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files), Hunted is an eight part series starring Melissa George as Sam Hunter, a skilled operative for a private intelligence firm.
According to the BBC, the character of Sam is “a complex and mysterious Bourne style female spy.” Sounds good to us.
We’ve got the first trailer for the show, which will air on both the BBC and Cinemax here in the U.S., and it’s chock full of spy action and everything else you would hope to see. We like it. Let us know what you think.
Hunted is set to premiere on BBC One and Cinemax this fall.
