Published

High octane spy thriller series Hunted stars Australian actress Melissa George as Sam Hunter, an operative for the elite private intelligence and security firm Byzantium, who is finishing a mission in Tangier when an attempt on her life leaves her critically injured. Not knowing who tried to kill her, she disappears to a remote location to recover, regroup and retrain.

Returning to work unannounced nearly a year later, Sam surprises her co-workers, who are suspicious about her disappearance, especially Aidan Marsh, her secret lover. Her bosses, Rupert Keel and Deacon Crane, retain doubts about her, but need their best agent for an important new assignment. The team devises a plan to have Sam infiltrate a family headed by powerful millionaire Jack Turner, a man with a criminal past whose ambitions are at odds with Byzantium’s secret client.

Hunted was a US-UK co-production between the BBC and cable channel Cinemax, the series premiered first in the UK on the 4th October and then in the US on the 19th. A second season was planned but the BBC pulled out, Cinemax then wanted to rejig the series as a four hour mini-series called Sam Hunter but that idea then too was cancelled.
