LOS ANGELES, May 11 (UPI) -- NBC says it has picked up "Chase," its fifth scripted series pilot for the 2010-11 U.S. television season.
The new drama from executive producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Jennifer Johnson joins the previously announced "Undercovers," "The Event," "Love Bites," and "Outsourced" on the lineup for NBC's upcoming season.
The announcement was made Monday by Angela Bromstad, president of prime time entertainment at NBC and Universal Media Studios.
"'Chase' has all the undeniable elements of a thrill ride that you would expect from a Jerry Bruckheimer action series," Bromstad said in a statement. "Equally important, it also features a great cast. Kelli Giddish is a breakout star as the lead."
NBC describes "Chase" as "a fast-paced drama that drops viewers smack into the middle of a game of cat-and-mouse as a team of U.S. marshals hunts down America's most dangerous fugitives."
It co-stars Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Rose Rollins and Jesse Metcalfe.
