ShineReveille on hunt for ‘Wanted’

Show focuses on the hunt for accused terrorists

ShineReveille Intl. has picked up worldwide distribution rights to the NBC News docu series “The Wanted,” which revolves around the hunt for accused terrorists around the world.

Series follows terrorism experts and former U.S. military and intelligence officers as they mount their own searches for sought-after terrorism suspects, including one described by NBC as “Bin Laden’s financier.”NBC News describes “Wanted” as a fast-paced show that “brings together an elite team with backgrounds in intelligence, unconventional warfare and investigative journalism.”

“Wanted” has raised concerns that NBC’s cameras could interfere with ongoing investigations by law enforcement agencies around the world. Some critics have said it raises the same ethical questions as the Peacock’s “To Catch a Predator” series from a few years back in which NBC News was closely involved with law enforcement agencies in filming elaborate sting operations designed to nab suspects accused of sex crimes.

The first two hourlong “Wanted” segs are set to bow at 10 p.m. on July 20 and July 27. Series features terrorism expert Roger Carstens, former Navy Seal Scott Tyler, former U.S. intelligence officer David Crane and investigative journo Adam Ciralsky. Ciralsky and Charlie Ebersol serve as exec producers.

ShineReveille will shop the NBC News-produced episodes to TV outlets around the world. ShineReveille Intl. prexy Chris Grant touted “Wanted” as the kind of “high-caliber, cutting-edge programming that plays so well across international markets.”

CAA, which reps Ciralsky, brokered the distrib deal for “Wanted.”
