Meet Sam. A spy. A hunter. And herself hunted by an enemy more ruthless and determined than any she’s ever known. Sam has been running from her past her entire life but when she returns to Byzantium, the organisation that employs her, and begins to pursue her pursuer, she will discover the only way to escape that past… is to confront it. This is the story of a spy with a bull’s eye on her back, a human target unable to trust anyone at any time, even the man she loves. She is, quite literally, running for her life. Hunted is a smart, complex and contemporary spy series.
This looks like it is going to be a very interesting series. Malahide will be playing Jack Turner, an ex-East End gangster who has improved his life. The series also stars another Game of Thrones star, Stephen Dillane who appeared alongside Malahide in the very fun 1980s series The One Game.
Hunted (previously known as Nemesis) is a 2012 television Drama series created and written by Frank Spotnitz and produced by Kudos Film and Television and Big Light Productions for British broadcaster BBC, for their flagship channel BBC One and American premium cable broadcaster Cinemax. The series is set to premiere on Cinemax on Friday, October 26 at 10 pm
The Wikipedia article states that Melissa George goes undercover as a nanny. From what I gather, she is working in the Turner household which appears to be headed by Patrick Malahide’s character Jack Turner. There are two other Turners played by Stephen Campbell Moore (Stephen Turner) and Oscar Kennedy (Edward Turner). My guess is that this represents 3 generations of the same family. I wonder if they are relevant to Sam’s past.
I am really looking forward to seeing this. It looks like it will be extremely interesting and a program to look out for. I really hope that Malahide’s character gets some excellent screen time and focus.
