CBS, as usual, has an impressive lineup starting the week of February 12th, with the return of sitcom favorites The Neighborhood and sadly, the fifth and final season of Bob Hearts Abishola.
Also returning are the FBI and NCI Franchises, with notable excitement around the premiere of NCIS: Hawaii and LL Cool J, who is reprising his role as Sam Hanna from NCIS: Los Angeles. But the real kick-off to the week begins after the Superbowl on Sunday night, with the debut of the new drama series Tracker.
Lone-wolf survivalist and expert tracker, Colter Shaw, is a reward seeker, roaming the countryside, helping private citizens and law enforcement solve complex mysteries. The CBS original, Tracker based on the bestselling novel The Never Game by Jeffery Deaver, stars Justin Hartley, as Colter Shaw.
The pilot episode titled Klamath Falls, written by Jeffery Deaver (The Bone Collector) and Ben H. Winters (Manhunt, Legion) was directed by Ken Olin (Thirtysomething, Alias), who previously worked with Hartley on the hit drama series This Is Us, created by Dan Fogelman. Tracker is scheduled to premiere after Super Bowl LVIII, Sunday, February 11, 2024 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS and the next day on-demand for Paramount+ Essential subscribers.

Starring alongside Hartley is Robin Weigert (Deadwood) as Teddi Bruin, Abby McEnany (Work In Progress) as Velma Bruin, Eric Graise (Locke & Key, Queer as Folk) as Bobby Exley, Fiona Rene (Fire Country, The Lincoln Lawyer) as Reenie Greene, and Paniz Zade (Fifty Shades Darker, Arrow) as Officer Amini.
Colter, navigating a fractured family background, is guided by his handlers, Velma (McEnany) and Teddi Bruin (Weigert). As he chases down leads that require more information, he gets assistance from tech expert Bobby Exley (Graise). Since Colter tends to investigate cases in unconventional ways, which sometimes leads to trouble with the law, he frequently relies on the legal expertise of Reenie Greene (Rene) to help him out of legal jams.
The series also features Wendy Crewson, known for her work in the Frankie Drake Mysteries as Mary Dove Shaw Colter's mother, and from the critically acclaimed shows OZ and Generation Kill, actor Lee Tergesen.
Tergesen plays Colter's father, Ashton Shaw, seen in the trailer walking through the woods with a young Colter, played by Prestyn Bates (Black-ish, Speechless), and Mathew Nelson-Mahood (Creep Show, Nancy Drew), as Russel Shaw.
"Watch Tracker, Pilot set for after Superbowl Sunday, Feb 11! Had a blast filming, can't wait for more," said Bates on his Instagram page.
In the first episode, Colter's handlers send him to Klamath Falls, Oregon, to investigate the disappearance of 14-year-old Gil Brown, who is suspected to have been taken by his birth dad with a criminal background. Tracker is produced by 20th Television. In addition to Hartley, Ken Olin, Ben H. Winters, and Hilary Weisman Graham are executive producing for 20th Television.
