Published: August 13, 2012 - 6:20am
Based on the popular film series which starred Jason Statham, the 12-part action series is the latest original series to join the premium cable channel. No premiere date has been set at this time.
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…The Movie,” “Birds of Prey”) as Delia, the daughter of someone from Frank’s past.
Stephen Williams, a director and co-executive producer of “Lost,” is directing the first episode. The series’ executive producers are Luc Besson, Fred Fuchs, Robert Cooper, Joseph Mallozzi & Paul Mullie and Alexander Ruemelin; produced by Susan Murdoch (QVF Inc.) and Klaus Zimmermann (Atlantique Productions). TRANSPORTER is a France/Canada international treaty co-production produced by Atlantique Productions and QVF Inc. in association with broadcast partners HBO/CINEMAX as well as The Movie Network and Movie Central (Canada), M6 (France) and RTL (Germany).
