TNT has acquired the broadcast rights to Transporter: The Series. The network announced on Thursday that they have picked up the show, which is based on the Jason Statham films, for the first two seasons. The first season will air in the US this fall, with the second season set to begin production in February. Shooting is planned for Morocco, the Czech Republic and Canada.
The series stars Chris Vance (Prison Break, Dexter, Rizzoli & Isles) as Frank Martin, 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.
