Like its sister network HBO already has, Cinemax has been moving into the original dramatic series arena. One of its most recent successes is the action series Strike Back, which just finished its second season on the network and will be coming back next year for a third.
Next up for Cinemax is another action series called Hunted. This one stars Melissa George, comes from X-Files writer and producer Frank Spotnitz and will run eight episodes.
The series is set in the world of international espionage with George starring as Sam Hunter, “a skilled, gutsy operative for Byzantium, a secretive private firm involved in global intelligence and espionage. After surviving an attempt on her life that may have been orchestrated by members of her own team, she returns to work, but doesn’t know who to trust.”
We’ve got some video from the series first episode to share with you today. Check them out after the break.
Hunted premieres tomorrow night, Friday October 19th, at 10/9C on Cinemax.
