In Channel 4’s Hunted, 11 ordinary people become fugitives and live off the grid in order to avoid being discovered by intelligence operatives.
They will win a share of £100,000 if they can outrun the elite team of hunters for 23 days.
The sixth series starts this weekend.
Here is what we know about the show.
What can we expect from this series of Hunted?
The fugitives are forced to flee from an island for the first time, the Isle of Wight.
They’ll have to outsmart the hunter helicopter and figure out how to get off the island without being discovered.
Lisa Theaker, the assistant chief constable of Cleveland Police, is leading the investigation.
She will lead a team of top police and military officers equipped with cutting-edge technology such as live CCTV, ANPR, GPS positioning, drones, tracker dogs, mobile phone monitoring, and public relations campaigns.
