Exclusive: I have just learned that Cinemax is preparing to announce that their new drama series Hunted will premiere on Friday October 26th at 10/9c. As previously reported, the drama series will be launching in the Friday night 10pm time-slot, which it will assume following the completion of the second season of Strike Back (which I’m told is set to premiere on Friday August 17th at 10/9c).
Hunted was created by Frank Spotnitz and follows Sam Hunter, a highly skilled operative for an elite private intelligence firm who survives an attempt on her life that may have been orchestrated by members of her own team. Once she returns to the firm, she performs her secretive duties without knowing who to trust and who wants her dead. The drama series stars Melissa George as Sam Hunter and Adam Rayner as Aidan Marsh, Sam’s colleague and potential love interest at the firm. Also starring in the series is Stephen Dillane (Game of Thrones), Morven Christie (The Sinking of the Laconia), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost), Lex Shrapnel (Captain America: The First Avenger), Uriel Emil (Criminal Justice), Patrick Malahide (Billy Elliot), Stephen Campbell Moore (The Bank Job, History Boys) and Oscar Kennedy (Toast).
