CBS is ramping up promotion of its new BC-filmed Tracker series starring Justin Hartley, ahead of the big post-Super Bowl LVII launch on February 11th.
Tracker follows Colter Shaw (Justin Hartley), a lone-wolf survivalist who roams the country as a reward seeker, using his expert tracking skills to help private citizens and law enforcement solve all manner of mysteries while contending with his own fractured family.
Colter Shaw travels around with an airstream trailer and a big truck.
And it looks like he can handle himself if not quite as brutally as Alan Ritchson’s Reacher.
Tracker filmed its premiere in BC’s desert terrain.
After a long delay due to Hollywood’s standoff with its striking writers and actors, Tracker returned to BC to start shooting the series at the end of November.
In the past few weeks, production has been spotted out in Belcarra and in Mission, where fan ChefB got to meet the star Justin Hartley.
