‘Transporter’ TV Series to Air on TNT

“Transporter The Series,” the French-Canadian action series based on the Jason Statham-starring film franchise, will air in the U.S. on TNT starting this fall, the cabler announced today.

The series, which stars “Rizzoli & Isles” and “Prison Break” actor Chris Vance as a professional “transporter” of both people and cargo, debuted in Germany and France in 2012 before airing on HBO Canada and Super Écran 1 in January 2013. Season two, which is slated to premiere worldwide in late 2014, goes into production Feb. 26 with Frank Spotnitz serving as showrunner.

“‘Transporter The Series’ is a roller-coaster ride with big-screen action, fantastic locations and an extremely charismatic lead in Chris Vance,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “The ‘Transporter’ franchise is a proven winner embraced by movie and television viewers around the globe, and we’re proud that TNT will become the television home for fans in the United States. ‘Transporter The Series’ is a perfect addition to TNT’s lineup, as we continue to expand our reach with such action-packed dramas as our upcoming ‘Legends’ and ‘The Last Ship.'”

The series is produced by Atlantique Productions, with executive producer Olivier Bibas and QVF Inc., with producer Susan Murdoch. Vance and producer Fred Fuchs are also executive producers. It is commissioned in France by M6 and in Canada by The Movie Network and Movie Central.
