America transmits Lex and Hunted

America transmits Lex and HuntedAmerican cable network Cinemax is the place to see HUNTED in the USA. This is the new series starring Lex Shrapnel. The show will make its debut there on Friday 19 October at 10.00pm ET (11.00pm PT). Their website has given out comprehensive details of the first and second episodes. WARNING – POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD...




Episode 1: “Mort”

USA debut date: Friday 19 October 2012 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)

Sam Hunter (Melissa George), an operative for the elite private intelligence and security firm Byzantium, is finishing a mission in Tangier when an attempt on her life leaves her critically injured. Not knowing who tried to kill her, she disappears to a remote location to recover, regroup and retrain. Returning to work unannounced nearly a year later, Sam surprises her co-workers, who are suspicious about her disappearance, especially Aidan Marsh (Adam Rayner), her secret lover.

Her bosses, Rupert Keel (Stephen Dillane) and Deacon Crane (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), retain doubts about her, but need their best agent for an important new assignment. The team devises a plan to have Sam infiltrate a family headed by powerful millionaire Jack Turner (Patrick Malahide), a man with a criminal past whose ambitions are at odds with Byzantium’s secret client.

Written by Frank Spotnitz.

Directed by SJ Clarkson.


Episode #2: “LB”

USA debut date: Friday 26 October 2012 (10:00-11:00 pm ET/PT)

Brought into the household by Turner’s son Stephen (Stephen Campbell Moore) to tutor his son Edward (Oscar Kennedy), Sam and the team continue surveillance of Jack Turner’s secret activities. They know that he is bidding for a multi-billion dollar dam in Pakistan, but his true motives elude them. Meanwhile, team members Zoe Morgan (Morven Christie) and Ian Fowkes (Lex Shrapnel), track a briefcase that was delivered to Turner.

Written by Frank Spotnitz.

Directed by SJ Clarkson.

HUNTED marks the second original primetime series ever to air on Cinemax (Strike Back, featuring fellow Thunderbuirds 2004 cast member Philip Winchester was their first).

The plot, revealed on the Cinemax website, is as follows:

“Hunted follows two primary story lines: Sam Hunter’s journey to discover who is behind the attempt on her life and Byzantium’s mission itself, both of which have larger implications. As the story unfolds, it becomes hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Uncertain of its clients’ motives, the Byzantium team often finds itself working in a gray area, forcing Sam to operate in complete secrecy for her own safety.”

Melissa George stars as Sam, and she says the character is someone you’d never want to cross. “She is still the firm’s best operative, but since the attempt on her life, any trust she had for the firm and her co-workers is gone. That is why she is so determined to go back to work and face her team – she really believes that one of them is behind it. She is a very complicated person and not easy to get to know."

Discussing the series, creator Frank Spotnitz explained, “I love the spy genre. It’s one of my all-time favorite things. I grew up watching so many spy movies and shows. Because the viewing choices have never been greater on television, no longer does the work have to be homogenized the way it used to. It has allowed writers and producers to do really interesting, sophisticated work. I think that television’s never been better than it is today because of that – because of the freedom you have as a creator.”.
