CHANNEL 10 confirms Australian edition of thriller reality series HUNTED for 2022

- ADVERTISEMENT -

Ahead of its Upfront event this week, the 10 Network has confirmed the commissioning of an Australian version of the thriller reality series Hunted.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go on the run from the authorities? What would you do? Who would you trust?

Hunted is a reality TV series where 14 ordinary people must go on the run and remain undetected for 28 days. On their trail is an expert team of hunters who use modern policing and security methods to find and capture the participants.

The acting fugitives are not allowed to bring any funds and must not enlist the help of others. On their own, they take on aliases as they do their best to become invisible amongst society.

The episodes capture every detail as hackers track their targets using the latest technology, hunters go under cover and runaways flee into back streets and the wilderness.

The successful format has already aired for five seasons in the UK on Channel 4.

Endemol Shine Australia will produce the Australian version of Hunted for Channel 10. A casting call for the series was published earlier this year, with the series expected to premiere mid-2022.

The commissioning of Hunted was confirmed during a recent Mi3 Podcast interview with ViacomCBS Australia Chief Content Officer Beverley McGarvey. At this stage, it’s unclear if Hunted will replace The Amazing Race Australia in 10’s program schedule in 2022.

10 has produced two seasons of The Amazing Race in recent years. However, ratings for the heritage reality format have remained lacklustre.

Channel 10 will unveil its full programming plans for 2022 at its virtual Upfront event this Wednesday, October 20.

Note: Due to an ongoing dispute regarding editorial independence, the 10 Network and its parent company ViacomCBS declined to provide assistance with the preparation of this content.
