Human Target (2010) is the second TV series based on the eponymous DC comic book created in 1972 by Len Wein and Carmine Infantino in Action Comics #419. The first season of the show was developed by Jonathan E. Steinberg, creator of the Jericho TV series. Warner Bros canceled Human Target on 2011, after the second season’s finale.
The series, set in San Francisco, follows the life of Christopher Chance, a highly trained private security contractor / bodyguard. Rather than taking on the target’s identity himself (as in the comic book version), he protects his clients by completely integrating himself into their lives, to become a human target. Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) is accompanied by his business partner Detective Laverne Winston (Chi McBride) and hired gun Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley). Former client Ilsa Pucci (Indira Varma), a recently widowed billionaire, becomes Chance’s benefactor, while experienced thief Ames (Janet Montgomery) joins the team to seek redemption.
The second season has not been released yet on DVD.
