NBC, which is still in need of some hot properties after the drought of quality programming they’ve experienced in the wake of Lenogate, keeps snatching up new shows.
The latest is Chase, from producer Jerry Bruckheimer. NBC calls the show an “action procedural,” in which a team of U.S. Marshalls hunt down the most dangerous fugitives in the nation. The fast-paced drama stars Kelli Giddish as Marshall Annie Frost, a deputy from Texas who’s described as having a cowboy sensibility and a sharp mind.
The way NBC talks about it, Chase sounds like a show with the trappings of a procedural (a villian-of-the-week, with no ongoing storylines) paired with a jolt of action and adventure. If it lives up to its name, it could be a diversionary fun.
