It takes a brave, selfless man to make himself a “human target” in order to save the lives of those in danger.
Based on the popular DC Comics comic book and graphic novel, HUMAN TARGET is a full-throttle action drama centered on CHRISTOPHER CHANCE (Mark Valley), a unique personal security expert hired to shield those in danger from an imminent threat that cannot be solved through normal means of protection.
Making amends for his former life as a mercenary and hired assassin, Chance is focused on one thing only now: saving his clients’ lives, even if it means placing himself directly in the line of fire.
The sophomore season begins with Chance rescuing his kidnapped business partner, WINSTON (Chi McBride), and retiring from the protection business to avoid facing the world of danger he seems to bring to those closest to him. But when billionaire philanthropist ILSA PUCCI (Indira Varma), tracks down the reclusive Chance, she convinces him that he is the only one who can protect her from the killers of her late husband. Chance reunites with Winston and their ethically challenged freelance operative, GUERRERO (Jackie Earle Haley), to save Ilsa’s life. While on assignment, the team encounters the chameleon-like AMES (guest star Janet Montgomery), a beautiful thief who can steal anything from anyone, anywhere.
After saving Ilsa and solving her husband’s murder, the grateful and impressed widow offers Chance and his associates the opportunity to work for her. Now armed with access to her private planes, latest technology and state-of-the-art offices, Chance will have unlimited means to protect the people he serves. Despite his newfound resources, Chance is still a man who doesn’t like to get too close – a tough predicament for someone whose job it is to never leave his clients’ side.
HUMAN TARGET is a production of Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision, DC Comics and Warner Bros. Television. McG, Matt Miller, Jonathan E. Steinberg, Brad Kern and Peter Johnson serve as executive producers.
