CBS has announced that The Never Game has been retitled Tracker. Hartley stars in and serves as an executive producer in the series. The premiere date for the fall will be announced at another time.
The network also released the first promo for the drama, showing Hartley’s Colter Shaw in a room, looking at a photo of a man and child, with the words “I will save you” across the screen. Watch it above.
Tracker, based on the bestselling novel The Never Game by Jeffery Deaver, follows Colter Shaw, a long-wolf survivalist who roams the country as a “reward seeker,” using his expert tracking skills to help private citizens and law enforcement solve all manner of mysteries while contending with his own fractured family. It also stars Robin Weigert, Abby McEnany, Eric Graise, and Fiona Rene.
Tracker is produced by 20th Television. In addition to Hartley, Ken Olin, Ben H. Winters, and Hilary Weisman Graham serve as executive producers for 20th Television. Olin directed the pilot from a script written by Winters.
