Anyone catch the extended trailer for this tonight at 8 on BBC1? It looks like a pretty intense thriller, made by Kudos (the people behind Spooks) and starring Melissa George. Hopefully the ad will be up on youtube soon.

Melissa George! I knew I recognised her from somewhere. Never thought it would be as far back as Home and Away.

Hmm..

The problem with trailers, all the "best bits" are in them, as it makes sense to do it. Then when you actually see the programme it can be a bit of a let down, so I won't get too excited about it yet. But at least it's another new drama, rather than commissioning new series of old ones that don't always live up to expectations, especially if they try to do it on the cheap.

Looking forward to this. I was looking at the website of Frank Spotnitz a couple of years ago, when he had done a series for the BBC.

Now it's here.

Cinemax have just put up a new trailer... Which looks better than the BBC1 trailer, I reckon.

Looks great

btw: So this is what that recent Ashley Judd series could have been had they left out the "gotta get me boy back" stuff.

Looking forward to Thursday when the series premieres on the Beeb - I've been missing Spooks and this could fill the void.

Unfortunately since it airs at 8pm it looks like she will be keeping her clothes on.

It's on at 9, but normally with premium cable secondary characters get their kit off, because they don't want to whore the lead actor/actress...

Oh dear!

The "blue filter treatment" this doesn't auger well.

I was thinking about this last night when I was watching a Strike Back, another programme that is a co-production between Cinemax and a British broadcaster (in this case Sky). The fact that Cinemax is involved means Strike Back has quite a lot of gratuitous nudity, as is the case with most things on Cinemax.

I canít believe BBC1 will allow the same level of sex and nudity in primetime in Hunted, even if Melissa George does have a history of getting naked on screen.
The same applies to the strong language that Cinemax normally insists upon, I canít see the BBC accepting that either.

Maybe Hunted is more BBC lead, or maybe there will be a UK and US edit of the programme. Either way, itíll be interesting to watch.

Hmm..


I'm wondering if with the accent on the attractive female lead, this'll turn out to be like the turkey; "Above Suspicion" with the dire Kelly Reilly.

Because she is a very good actress. I think this will be similar to spooks with regards to content. Don`t think it will be anything like strike back or at least i hope not because that show is a complete joke.

I actually like Strike Back, itís mindless over the top action.
But I admit its not primetime BBC material for lots of reason so I suspect Hunted will be more similar to Spooks than Strike Back. Having said that, if it is itíll be the tamest Cinemax programme ever!
