"Transporter The Series" Coming to TNT in Fall 2014

TNT Lands U.S. Television Rights to Action-Packed Drama As Production Begins on Second Season in Morocco

TNT has picked up Transporter The Series, making the network the U.S. television home for the exhilarating, adrenaline-charged series based on the smash-hit movie franchise. TNT will air the first and second seasons of the series, which will make its U.S. television debut on the network in fall 2014. Season two, which is slated to premiere worldwide in late 2014, will go into production Feb. 26, with shooting planned for Morocco, the Czech Republic and Canada.

Transporter The Series stars British actor Chris Vance, whose credits include Prison Break, Dexter and Burn Notice. A familiar face to TNT viewers, Vance has a recurring role on the network's hit series Rizzoli & Isles, in which he plays Lt. Col. Charles "Casey" Jones, Jane Rizzoli's on-again-off-again romantic interest.

Transporter The Series centers on Frank Martin (Vance), a professional "transporter" paid to pick up and deliver people or cargo from anywhere in the world. Frank is the very best at what he does and handles only the most difficult dangerous and assignments. Transporter The Series features dry wit, exotic locations, heart-pounding action and nail-biting suspense.

"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."

Transporter The Series is produced by Atlantique Productions, with executive producer Olivier Bibas (Borgia, Jo), and QVF Inc., with producer Susan Murdoch (Doomstown, Dan for Mayor). The series is commissioned in France by M6 and in Canada by The Movie Network and Movie Central. Award-winning writer and producer Frank Spotnitz (X-Files, Hunted, Strikeback) has come on board as the new showrunner and executive producer of the 12-episode second season. Also serving as executive producers are Chris Vance and award-winning producer Fred Fuchs (The Godfather: Part III, Bram Stoker's Dracula).
