This is a little strange and it is not a sponsored piece.
This is a casting call
CBS is premiering their new reality series, Hunted on Sunday, January 22. The premise:
“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.”
Basically its The Fugitive where you are Harrison Ford and if Tommy Lee Jones catches you, you lose… instead of going to jail for a murder you didn’t commit.
Season 1 has a room escape designer
The season that is about to air has Lee Wilson of Jackson Escape Rooms as one of the fugitives (contestants).
Casting call for season 2
We won’t find out how Wilson did until season 1 airs, but he must have put on a good show because CBS is looking for more room escapers for season 2.
Personally, this is the kind of thing that I would love to try without the prize money or television cameras… which is also how I feel about Survivor.
They are looking for teams of 2 who know each other well (spouses, significant others, close family, best friends), have the skills to succeed, and present a compelling backstory that will work well for television.
If this interests you at all, you should absolutely apply. We’ll root for you.
