American broadcaster CBS is scheduled to premiere the reality competition series Hunted following the National Football League’s AFC Championship game this January.

Produced by Endemol Shine North America, Hunted challenges nine teams of two individuals on a real-life manhunt as they attempt to disappear and evade capture by an elite team of investigators in the modern digital world.

Hunters in the field and Command Center investigators will utilize state-of-the-art tracking methods and traditional tactics – from searching the targets’ homes to scouring their cellphone and internet history – to identify behavioral patterns in order to apprehend each fugitive.

Each team that avoids capture for up to 28 days will receive a grand prize of US$250,000.

Details about the fugitive teams and Command Center personnel will be announced in the coming weeks.

The series is based on the UK format of the same name, now in its second season, which was originally created and produced by Shine TV.

Laura Fuest Silva, Brian Catalina, Eden Gaha, Robert Smith and Robin Feinberg serve as executive producers on the series.

Hunted bows across CBS on Jan. 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Following the premiere, the series will then settle into a primetime slot each Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT beginning Jan. 25.
