The Super Bowl isn’t the only exciting program on television on Feb. 11: Following the championship football game is the premier of TRACKER, a new drama series starting daytime grad Justin Hartley (ex-Adam, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS)!
Based on The Never Game book series by Jeffrey Deaver, TRACKER stars Hartley as Colter Shaw, a lone-wolf survivalist who roams the country in an RV as a reward seeker. Using his expert tracking skills, Colter helps private citizens and law enforcement solve all manner of mysteries — while contending with his own fractured family.
“The best-selling novel The Never Game is what my new series is based on,” Hartley explained in a video posted to his new show’s social media channels. “And that series is called TRACKER and it premieres right here on CBS after the Super Bowl. Check it out.”
Hartley — whom daytime fans may also remember from his run as Crane Fox on PASSIONS — was first connected with the new show back in the fall of 2021, as his critically acclaimed NBC drama, THIS IS US, was coming to a close. Not only is the actor starring in TRACKER, but he shares an executive producer credit for the series alongside THIS IS US director/producer Ken Olin. “When I read the book, I was immediately drawn to the character and the story; developing this project with Ken has been a true labor of love,” Hartley said at the time. “Colter is going to kick some serious ass, and I can’t wait for audiences to meet him.”
Now that TRACKER is about to premiere, Hartley can’t wait for his fans to see him in his exciting new role. “Hope you love watching as much as we enjoyed making every moment of this,” he recently enthused on Instagram, sharing a preview of the show.
Check out a preview of TRACKER below, and then tune in on Sunday, Feb. 11, after the Super Bowl to see the first episode. (The series will then move to its regular timeslot of Thursdays at 10 p.m. starting with an encore presentation on Feb. 15.)
