If you were wondering how long it would take before the nation plunged into a society that attempts to have people hunt down other people for television entertainment, you’re in luck. No, they didn’t give Ted Nugent another show where he’s shooting people with net guns. Instead, it’s Matt Damon and Ben Affleck executive producing a new reality series with Verizon titled The Runner.

They’re currently looking for cast — which you can attempt to audition for over at their site — and the premise is a bit familiar:

Somewhere in the United States, a mysterious RUNNER will be racing toward an undisclosed city. That RUNNER will be hunted by competing teams of CHASERS. It is up to the RUNNER to use strategy and determination to avoid the CHASERS and make it to the target city. The task of the CHASERS is to find the RUNNER before time runs out… or another group of CHASERS beats them to it.

So here’s the big question: Are you a RUNNER or a CHASER?
