CBS has ordered a new one-hour reality show, Hunted, that turns ordinary people into fugitives on the run.

Hunted challenges its contestants to go into hiding, while professional investigators attempt to track them down in a nationwide manhunt, using everything from cell phone records to determining behavioral patterns.

Fall TV's must-watch new shows

"Hunted is a compelling new alternative series format, which our Alternative department had been tracking for a while, that feels tailor-made for CBS," said Glenn Geller, the president of CBS Entertainment. "It combines the suspense of a crime drama with the thrill of a competition reality series and some very topical social issues."

The reality show is being adapted from a British series of the same name, which premiered only a few weeks ago to strong ratings.
