'Transporter' TV series: Chris Vance replaces Jason Statham - video
The Cinemax action drama will see Prison Break actor Chris Vance assume the role of extreme driver Frank Martin, played by Jason Statham in the original Transporter movies.
French actor François Berléand - who played Martin's ally Inspector Tarconi in the Transporter films - will reprise his role in the series.
The show, to air in the US in late 2012, has suffered a troubled production. Original executive producers Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie quit the project last August, with replacement showrunner Steve Shill also departing the series in January this year.
Filming was also postponed in October 2011 when star Vance injuring himself shooting an action sequence.
Twelve episodes of Transporter: The Series have been ordered, with a budget of $43 million (£27.4 million).
