Here's the first trailer for Cinemax's new TV series Transporter, which is the small screen adaptation of Luc Besson and Jason Statham's action-packed movie franchise. Besson serves as an executive producer on the series, and the role of the Transporter is being played by Chris Vance (Burn Notice), who seems to give the character more of a James Bond kind of feel to him. The Transporter film franchise has been entertaining to watch over the years, and it looks like this series will be just as action-packed and entertaining.
Here's the synopsis:
Based on the successful film franchise of the same name created by Europacorp's Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, this fast-paced series follows the adventures of professional transporter Frank Martin, who can always be counted on to get the job done - discreetly. Operating in a seedy underworld of dangerous criminals and desperate players, his three rules are: Never change the deal, no names, and never open the package. Occasionally, complications arise and rules get broken.
Andrea Osvart (Duplicity) co-stars as Martin's trusted handler Carla and Francois Berléand reprises his role of Inspector Tarconi from the films. The cast also includes Delphine Chanéac (Splice) in the recurring role of Juliette, a reporter who seems to know a lot about Frank's work, and Rachel Skarsten (Made,Birds of Prey) as Delia, the daughter of someone from Frank's past.
The 12-part action series is set to debut on Cinemax later this year. Watch the trailer for the series below and let us know if you think it looks good enough for you to watch!
