The Pilot episode of Zo!s show Sprinting Man. Convicts are released into the wilds of Eox with little more than a hazmat suit, with the goal of escaping. Those who succeeded got a full pardon. A cast of bounty hunters are also hired to track them down, and were awarded for a confirmed kill, but even more if captured alive. The show ran for three seasons, where fans would have their favorite bounty hunters, and each episode was full of anticipation whether a particular convict would escape, be captured for another season, or have their Sprint end on the kill pile.
The show ran for three seasons before it had some hang ups. Mainly the high mortality rate of the convicts (whether by bounty hunters or the planet itself) lead to fewer volunteers from Eox's convict population, short of the lifers and those on undead (or redead) row. As a result the pool of new contestants thinned and were less empathetic, and when the question was posed what would happen if one of these hardened criminals actually escaped, it lead to litigation that ultimately saw the pact council order the show cease and desist for humanitarian and public safety reasons.
In spite of the controversy the show still has a dedicated fanbase that hold a yearly convention declaring "bring Sprinting Man back!"
