Fox has picked up comic book drama “Human Target” to series.
“Target,” from WBTV, DC Comics and Wonderland, emerged as an early front-runner and was the best-received pilot at the network’s screenings last week.
Based on the DC Comics title, the show centers on Christopher Chance (Mark Valley), a mysterious freelancer who offers a unique form of security for hire: He assumes the identities of people in danger, becoming the “human target” on behalf of his clients.
Jackie Earle Haley and Chi McBride co-star in the project written by Jon Steinberg and directed by Simon West. The two exec produced the pilot with McG.
On the bubble front, cult favorite “Dollhouse” is still in contention.
