The Transporter films helped make a star of Jason Statham, but a TV series version of the same story has worked a little differently for Chris Vance. The actor inherits Statham’s role — or I should say inherited. Because Transporter: The Series aired in quite a few countries in 2012 and 2013, and is just now coming to the US via TNT this fall. This Transporter TV series trailer shows that there are quite a few similarities in tone and style to the films. As in the movies, the central character is a former Special Forces operative who now makes a living by “transporting” sensitive and sometimes living cargo.
TNT will air the first season that hit the rest of the world a year ago, but will also show the new second season.
