The Hunted
Yeah yeah, another dumb "reality" TV show, but I like the premise of this one. The first episode was after the football game last night.

Teams of people pretending to be on the run vs. a team of investigators trying to track them down using police/PI tactics..  If you manage to avoid capture for a month you win $250K.  There was a British version a few years ago.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Yes, it's a dumb game, and we know some of the rules, but not all of them.  The players are only allowed to access a known bank account with $500 in it and max withdrawal each time is $100.  They supposedly didn't know ahead of time exactly when the game would start (and they get a 1 hour headstart over the hunters), but they were allowed some pre-planning  One of the hunted met a friend at a pre-arranged spot to drop off her dog and teenager.  I don't know if anyone was allowed to pre-arrange a burner phone, or an un-registered vehicle loaded with camping gear and food (probably not because we didn't see anyone actually do that).

They're allowed to travel a huge area. Georgia, South Carolina, North East Florida and a sliver of eastern Alabama.

Become like hobo's, camp at rail underpasses and ride the trains.  Grab some cash and belongings first thing then panhandle to other homeless to survive.  If there's two of you then much better chance at surviving without being robbed or mugged.  Your cover story about how you'll win millions if you survive for a month is no more or less crazy than others in the same situation.

Are experienced criminals allowed on the show?

The camera crew following you around 24/7 makes it interesting.

Yeah, one of the couples, the dude is a former criminal turned criminal defense lawyer.  He's been arrested 13 times and has experience being on the run.  His wife (or girlfriend) is the one who fucked up and wrote on the calendar and left the impressions behind.
