I'm really looking forward to seeing how Hunted is received in the US. Having seen the first episode, it's fast pace, familiar faces and frenetic story should make it a booming success on Cinemax. While it doesn't have all of the sex and nudity of their other hit, Strike Back, I think the writing is superior and the tale more compelling.
Melissa George is a natural for the spy business and picks up where she left off so many years ago in the much loved Alias. Only now she's the lead, kick's a lot more ass and has nothing to lose.
Costars Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is best known for his roles on Lost as Mr. Eko and OZ as Adibisi and Dhaffer L'Abidine is easy on the eyes and has had roles in Strike Back and Britain's hit Casualty among others.
I'm really pleased with the choices Cinemax is making in their partnership programming, and as long as they continue down this road it will continue to be a staple on my satellite package.
