Last December we learned that a major broadcast partner was teaming with Luc Besson to bring a TV series adaptation of The Transporter film franchise to life. Now Deadline reports the pay channel Cinemax will be behind the series. The series will follow Frank Martin, the same character played by Jason Statham in the films as he transports anything, anywhere, anytime and by any means necessary. But he has three rules: Never change the deal, no names and never open the package. The series order stands at 12 episodes with a budget of $48 million, so this should be quite an upscale adaptation. The question is who will step into Statham’s shoes to get into the action.
