From The X-Files writer/producer Frank Spotnitz comes the eight-episode drama Hunted, set in the world of international espionage. Sam Hunter (Melissa George) is an operative for an elite private intelligence firm called Byzantium, who survives an attempt on her life that may have been orchestrated by members of her own team. When she returns to work, she doesn’t know who to trust, but is determined to do whatever it takes to get answers. Shot entirely on location in Morocco, Scotland and London, the show also stars Adam Rayner, Stephen Dillane, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Morven Christie and Lex Shrapnel.
During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, Frank Spotnitz talked about how Hunted evolved into a series, where the concept started, the importance of making and keeping things believable, how exciting it was to work in the U.K. with such an international cast, the biggest challenges of doing a show on this scale, and how many questions they’ll answer by the end of the season. He also talked about having a number of projects, locked away in a drawer, that he’d love to do someday, and what he enjoys about the storytelling for television versus film. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
