If you’re a fan of “The Transporter” movie franchise, you’re in luck. “Transporter The Series,” which has already aired its first season in Europe and Canada, is coming to American TV sets on the TNT network.

TNT will air the first and second seasons of the series, which will make its U.S. television debut on the network in fall 2014. Season two, which is slated to premiere worldwide in late 2014, will go into production Feb. 26, with shooting planned for Morocco, the Czech Republic and Canada.

“Transporter The Series” stars British actor Chris Vance (pictured above), whose credits include “Prison Break,” “Dexter” and “Burn Notice.”  Vance also has a recurring role on the TNT series “Rizzoli & Isles,” in which he plays Lt. Col. Charles “Casey” Jones.

For those unfamiliar with the movies, “Transporter The Series” centers on Frank Martin (Vance, taking on Jason Statham’s role from the films), a professional “transporter” paid to pick up and deliver people or cargo from anywhere in the world. Frank is the best at what he does and handles only the most difficult dangerous and assignments. “Transporter The Series” features exotic locations, action and suspense.
