Amazon Prime Video announced its first unscripted Italian Amazon Original series "Celebrity Hunted" – "Caccia all’uomo", a real-life thriller over six episodes where celebrities go on the run from a team of expert hunters. The show brings together eight Italian celebrities including football player Francesco Totti, artist Fedez, YouTuber Luis Sal, actor Claudio Santamaria alongside the journalist and writer Francesca Barra, popular anchorman Costantino della Gherardesca (Pechino Express), plus actors Diana Del Bufalo (Che Dio ci aiuti, C’era una volta Studio Uno) and Cristiano Caccamo (Matrimonio italiano, Questo è il mio paese). Celebrity Hunted – Caccia all’uomo is produced by EndemolShine Italy and will launch exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories in 2020.
