Could you disappear without a trace?
Arriving soon on Channel 10, the radical social experiment Hunted Australia will take viewers on an intense, edge-of-the-seat journey where ordinary Australians go on the run, attempting to avoid a crack team of expert hunters.
Hunted Australia follows nine pairs of ordinary Australians who become fugitives in this unique new series.
With limited funds and resources, they will have to think of ingenious ways to survive and remain undetected for 21 days.
Hunting them down are some of the world’s best investigators selected from the Australian Federal Police, Australian Defence Force, British Intelligence, skilled cyber analysts, special ops and private security, using their expertise and replicated powers of state.
Filmed entirely in Melbourne and greater regional Victoria, our cunning fugitives will need to be at the top of their game to evade capture from the ground hunters and the Hunted HQ team.
The fugitives will not be allowed any money to assist them and are unable to enlist the help of others during their desperate flight. To evade their pursuers, they’ll need to become invisible.
But when every move you make can leave a trace, hiding in plain sight will be far from simple.
Daniel Monaghan, Senior Vice President, Content and Programming, ViacomCBS Australia and New Zealand, said:
“Hunted is a gripping reality series that has been a huge success in the UK, and we are thrilled to bring it to Australia for our own local version.
“Our Aussie fugitives will need physical strength, mental toughness, and the gift of the gab to conquer this game – we can’t wait to watch them in action.”
Endemol Shine Australia CEO, Peter Newman, added:
“Hunted Australia is a blockbuster reality-thriller that asks… could you evade capture when hunted day and night by a team of Australia’s elite investigators?
“When Hunted Australia explodes onto our screens in 2022 with its unique fusion of real-world investigative techniques and cutting-edge storytelling, Aussies will be glued to every twist and turn of an unrelenting and unmissable game of cat and mouse.”
Where will they hide? Who can they trust? What will they do to win? When the clock is ticking, only time will tell.
Hunted Australia is an Endemol Shine Australia production for Network 10.
