Deadline is reporting that Cinemax is teaming with Luc Besson for a 12-episode TV series based on the Transporter film franchise. The first season is budgeted at $48 million:
Transporter, the series, will center on professional transporter Frank Martin, played in the movies by Jason Statham. Operating in a seedy underworld of dangerous criminals and desperate players, Martin can always be counted on to get the job done — discreetly. He has three rules: Never change the deal, no names and never open the package.
