Like Alan Ritchson’s Jack Reacher, Justin Hartley’s Colter Shaw is a nomadic, good-with-his-fists loner who travels America solving ordinary people’s problems. In Colter’s case there is no military background. Instead he acquired his Tracker skills growing up with a survivalist father.
And Colter gets paid. Not a lot but enough to own a GMC truck and an Airstream trailer.
Adapted from the Jeffrey Dean thriller The Never Game, 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.
