Deadline reports that the series will explore the limits of how far someone would go to fight for their life and their family. It centers on Dodge Maynard (Hemsworth) who is desperate to take care of his pregnant wife before a terminal illness can take his life, and accepts an offer to participate in a deadly game where he soon discovers that he’s not the hunter… but the prey.
Christoph Waltz plays Miles Seller and is joined by a killer cast that includes Sarah Gadon, Zach Cherry, Aaron Poole, Christopher Webster, Billy Burke, and Natasha Bordizzo.
Scorpion creator Nick Santora will write and executive produce the series. Emmy-nominated director Phil Abraham (Castle Rock) will direct and also executive produce. Gordon Gray and Silver Reel Pictures also executive produce while CBS TV Studios produces for Quibi.
