'Transporter: The Series' racing to TNT this fall
"Transporter: The Series" is making its way to TNT.
The cable network has picked up the rights to the series based on the film franchise that starred Jason Statham.
"Transporter: The Series" features Chris Vance ("Prison Break," "Rizzoli & Isles") stepping in Statham's shows as Frank Martin, an ace driver paid to transport people or cargo anywhere in the world -- no questions asked.
"X-Files" vet Frank Spotnitz will act as the new showrunner and executive producer of the 12-episode second season, which will go into production February 26. Shooting will take place in Morocco, the Czech Republic and Canada.
