NBC announced today that it has picked up its fifth series for the 2010-11 season – a drama called Chase from executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI). The series that will star Kelli Giddish (Past Life), Cole Hauser (K-Ville), Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break), and Jesse Metcalfe (Desperate Housewives) is about a team of U.S. marshals who hunt down America’s most dangerous fugitives. “Chase has all the undeniable elements of a thrill ride that you would expect from a Jerry Bruckheimer action series,” said Angela Bromstad, President, Primetime Entertainment, NBC and Universal Media Studios, in a statement. “Equally important, it also features a great cast. Kelli Giddish is a breakout star as the lead.”
NBC already announced that it has picked up Undercovers, The Event, Love Bites, and Outsourced for fall. More pickups are expected in anticipation of NBC’s fall presentation to advertisers on May 17 in New York.
Chase was written by Jennifer Johnson (Cold Case).
