Jason Statham owned the Transporter movie franchise with his rules, ass-kicking and charisma, but he’s handing over the keys for an iteration meant for the small screen. The new Transporter: The Series centers on Frank Martin, an ex-Special Forces field operative who has taken to transporting precious cargo to make a living. While Statham made the role famous, Chris Vance (All Saints) will climb into the driver’s seat for the series. The premise is series worthy, but without Statham, will it be enough?
