NBCU Networks to Air Hulu Drama Chance


LONDON: NBCUniversal International Networks has acquired Chance, starring Hugh Laurie, to air in the U.K., France, Germany, Spain and Poland.

Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and acquired from Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution, the first season will begin airing in Poland in April. It will then roll out in the other territories in May. Season two will come later in 2017.

Based on Kem Nunn’s novel, Chance is a psychological thriller that focuses on a San Francisco-based forensic neuro-psychiatrist, Eldon Chance, played by Laurie (House, The Night Manager). Chance reluctantly gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness.
