"Strike Back" won't be back until next summer, but Cinemax has a drama worthy of its time slot airing the next eight Fridays. "Hunted" debuts at 9 p.m. CT Oct. 19 with the episode "Mort" that introduces viewers to the world of private intelligence and security firms like Byzantium, which are hired by clients that would rather stay confidential, mostly because they hire the firms to steal corporate secrets or for other murky operations. The series stars Melissa George as Byzantium operative Sam Hunter, who rebounds from an attempt on her life to hunt down those who betrayed her. She also infiltrates a family headed by mobster-turned-millionaire Jack Turner (Patrick Malahide), a man whose ambitions are at odds with Byzantium's secret client. The episode was written by series creator Frank Spotnitz and directed by S.J. Clarkson. Check out the sneak peeks and photos in the gallery below.
