Plot Synopsis

HUNTED follows nine teams of two in a real-life manhunt as they attempt the nearly impossible task of disappearing in today's vast digital world as highly skilled investigators combine state-of-the-art tracking methods with traditional tactics to pursue and catch them. From searching their targets' homes and scouring their internet and cell phone histories, to identifying behavioral patterns, Hunters in the field and Command Center investigators work together to identify clues to potential hiding places and collaborators that can ultimately lead to capture. Will the anxiety of being fugitives on the run cause teams to make a critical error, or will they be able to stay off the grid long enough to avoid being found within 100,000 square miles of the southeastern United States? A grand prize of $250,000 will be awarded to each team that successfully evades being caught for up to 28 days. The Command Center will be led by a trio of intelligence and operations experts, and is staffed with current and former members of some of the top agencies in the world, including the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, British Intelligence, Navy SEALs and the U.S. Marshal Service. Heading up the Command Center are: Commander Robert W. Clark, former senior FBI official; Head of Operations Lenny DePaul, former commander of U.S. Marshals; Head of Intelligence Theresa Payton, former White House Chief Information Officer; Intelligence Specialist Ben Owen, former British Intelligence; Operations Supervisor Ryan 'Ry Phi' Phillips, Georgia SWAT Commander; Operations Supervisor Andy Stumpf, former Navy SEAL; Intelligence Analyst Steve Masterson, former Naval Intelligence; Intelligence Analyst Connie Min, former CIA Analyst; Intelligence Analyst Aki Peritz, former CIA Analyst; Intelligence Analyst Zaira Pirzada, research analyst and independent contractor; Cyber Analyst Myke Cole, former military cyber analyst; Cyber Analyst Charles DeBarber, former U.S. Army cyber intelligence; Cyber Analyst Landon Stewart, former NSA cyber intelligence; and Behavioral Profiler Dr. Max Wachtel. HUNTED premieres on Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 10pm ET/7pm PT on CBS.
