Following in the footsteps of Strike Back® and from creator/writer and three-time Emmy® nominee Frank Spotnitz (Strike Back®, The X-Files®), Hunted® is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that stars Melissa George (In Treatment®, Alias®) as Sam Hunter, a highly skilled operative for an elite private security firm called Byzantium, who narrowly survives an attempt on her life that may have been orchestrated by members of her own team.
Once Sam returns to work a year later (having told nobody her whereabouts), she must perform her secretive duties without knowing who to trust – and who might want her dead. While continuing her search for the truth – and effort that sheds light on her tragic past – Sam is ordered to infiltrate a wealthy, high-profile family by posing as a good Samaritan, which leads her into a mystery more vast, complex, and dangerous than she could have ever imagined. Brilliant, beautiful, ruthless, and efficient, Sam is a force to be reckoned with as the first season of Hunted unfolds. The DVD ships today!

From the creator of True Blood®, this exciting new Cinemax® action drama charts the twists and turns that follow Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-convict who improbably becomes sheriff of a rural, Amish-area town while searching for a woman he last saw 15 years ago, when he gave himself up to police to let her escape after a jewel heist. Living in Banshee under an assumed name, Carrie Hopewell (Ivana Milicevic) is now married to the local DA, has two children (one of whom may be Lucas’), and is trying desperately to keep a low profile – until Lucas arrives to shake up her world and rekindle old passions. Complicating matters is the fact that Banshee is riddled by corruption, with an Amish overlord, Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen), brutally building a local empire of drugs, gambling and graft. With the help of a boxer-turned-barkeeper named Sugar Bates (Frankie Faison), Lucas is able to stay on even footing with Kai and his thugs, and even manages to bring a measure of tough justice to Banshee. But eventually, Lucas’ appetite for pulling heists pulls him and Carrie into a dangerous cauldron of duplicity, exacerbated when Mr. Rabbit (Ben Cross), the NY mobster they once ripped off, closes in with vengeance on his mind.

Inspired by David Simon’s award-winning HBO® series Treme®, this celebration of the culinary spirit of post-Katrina New Orleans features recipes and tributes from the characters, real and fictional, who highlight the Crescent City’s rich foodways. From chef Janette Desautel’s own Crawfish Ravioli and LaDonna Batiste-Williams’s Smothered Turnip Soup to the city’s finest Sazerac, New Orleans’ cuisine is a mélange of influences from Creole to Vietnamese, at once new and old, genteel and down-home, and, in the words of Toni Bernette, “seasoned with delicious nostalgia.” As visually rich as the series itself, the book includes 100 heritage and contemporary recipes from the city’s heralded restaurants such as Upperline, Bayona, Restaurant August, and Herbsaint, plus original recipes from renowned chefs Eric Ripert, David Chang, and other Treme guest stars. For the 6 million who come to New Orleans each year for its food and music, this is the ultimate homage to the traditions that make it one of the world’s greatest cities.
