"Human Target" Shoots For A Second Season

Fox' Vancouver-lensed TV series, "Human Target", based on the DC Comics comic books has been renewed for a second season.

"Human Target" is produced by Warner Bros. Television for executive producer Jonathan Steinberg. Matt Miller ("Chuck") will take over the second season as 'showrunner'.

Supporting the TV series, a new "Human Target" comic book series was released February 10, written by Len Wein and Peter Johnson, with art by Bruno Redondo, Sergio Sandoval, Chris Sprouse, Karl Story and a cover by illustrator Lee Bermejo.

"'Christopher Chance' is a unique private contractor/security expert/bodyguard hired when an unusual or imminent threat cannot be solved through normal means of protection. Chance works with his business partner and trusted friend, 'Winston' and hired gun 'Guerrero', to integrate himself completely into his clients lives and eliminate the threat by becoming the human target..."

"Human Target" stars Mark "Boston Legal" Valley as the DC Comics character, created in 1972, by writer Len Wein and illustrator Carmine Infantino, following detective/bodyguard 'Christopher Chance' who impersonates clients to eliminate threats, becoming the 'human target'.

Writer Peter Milligan and illustrator Edvin Biukovic revived the character in 1999 for a four-issue limited series followed by the graphic novel "Human Target: Final Cut", an ongoing series that lasted 21 issues.
