If you’ve ever fantasised about throwing away your phone and disappearing without leaving a digital footprint, look away now.

Channel 4’s new series Hunted is set to explore what it’s like to stay concealed in a society where being monitored is a daily reality and questions whether we ever truly can run away from 24/7 surveillance.

Part-documentary and part-thriller, this brand new format sees 14 ordinary participants on the run to evade capture from expert Hunters. Can they escape detection, avoid CCTV and even social media?

Hunted is commissioned from Shine TV, producers of the hit Channel 4 series The Island with Bear Grylls. Hunted is a joint project between Channel 4’s formats and documentaries.

Dom Bird, Head of Formats at Channel 4, said: “I’m fascinated to see if it’s ever really possible to just disappear in a world where we are under constant observation. It is a daring and ambitious social experiment which is hugely exciting for Channel 4.”

While its release date is yet to be confirmed, we’re already holding our breath for the scariest new format to hit the broadcaster’s channel…
