Hemsworth will play Dodge Maynard, a terminally ill man who is desperate to provide for his pregnant wife before he dies. He accepts an offer to participate in a deadly game where he discovers he is not the hunter, but the prey.

The series hails from Nick Santora and CBS Television Studios. Deadline said Santora will write and executive produce, with Phil Abraham to direct and serve as co-executive producer.

Santora created the CBS series Scorpion, which had a four-season run from 2014 to 2018. He also co-created the A&E show Breakout Kings and co-executive produced the Fox series Prison Break.

Quibi's other projects include the sci-fi series Don't Look Deeper starring Don Cheadle, the comedy show Chrissy's Court with Chrissy Teigen and the comedy series Dummy starring Anna Kendrick.

Hemsworth is known for playing Gale Hawthorne in the Hunger Games movies, which co-starred Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson. Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins announced this month she will release a prequel novel in 2020.
