Kiefer Sutherland to Star in Quibi's THE FUGITIVE Adaptation

Kiefer Sutherland to Star in Quibi's THE FUGITIVE Adaptation
Kiefer Sutherland has signed on to star in mobile-only streaming service Quibi's upcoming adaptation of "The Fugitive". First announced in July, the series is a reimagining of the 1993 film of the same name starring Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones, which in turn was based on the TV show of the same name that ran between 1963 and 1967.

Sutherland will star as Detective Clay Bryce, a grizzled, well-respected Los Angeles cop leading an investigation into Mike Ferro, played by "Logan" star Boyd Holbrook, a blue-collar worker who is incorrectly, and very publicly, blamed for a bomb that destroys a subway train.

The series will be written by Nick Santora, who is best known for creating "The Scorption" at CBS, and directed by Stephen Hopkins ("Race", "Predator 2"). Santora, Basil Iwanyk, Tom Lassally and Albert Torres will executive produce, and production is expected to begin in October.

Quibi shows will only be available on mobile devices, with each episode running no longer than 10 minutes. The app will cost viewers $4.99 per month for ad-supported viewing, or run $7.99 for ad-free viewing.
