Fox nabs ‘Wanted’ from Nash

Survival series added to the reality fray, 'Runners' to join race as well

They feel “Wanted” over at Nash Entertainment, as Fox officially ordered six episodes of the reality skein Wednesday.

Nash and DLT Entertainment –which snagged the U.S. format rights to “Wanted,” a U.K. series that combines elements of “The Fugitive,” “Survivor” and “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire”– had been shopping the series around town (Daily Variety, June 15).

“Wanted” follows three teams of “runners” who try to elude capture by teams of “trackers” — former professional bounty hunters and ex-law enforcement officers charged with “arresting” the runners. Fugitives will be forced to show themselves in public by performing tasks as prescribed by the show’s producers.

Viewers will also be given a chance to arrest the contestants, and all captures will take place live during the show’s telecast.

Hewland Intl. produced the U.K. version of the program for two seasons in association with Channel 4. Versions have also popped up in Sweden, the Netherlands, Argentina, Germany and Japan.

ABC has its own on-the-lam reality skein in the works from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck (Daily Variety, June 22). “The Runner” follows a single contestant who must travel to a certain area while completing physical challenges. Like “Wanted,” viewers will be asked to uncover the fugitive.

Fox is also expected to pick up the LMNO Prods. project “Boot Camp” shortly.
