NBC picks up 'Chase' for new season

chase-nbc-320.jpg"Chase" has joined the growing NBC lineup.

The new drama from Jerry Bruckheimer is the latest scripted show the network has picked up, Angela Bromstad, NBC primetime chief announced Monday (May 10).

"Chase," which centers on a team of U.S. marshals that hunt down dangerous fugitives, stars Kelli Giddish as U.S. Marshal Annie Frost, a Texan who uses her roots and boots to help her track down the criminals.

Also part of the team are "Desperate Housewives" alum Jesse Metcalfe, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco and Rose Rollins.

"'Chase' has all the undeniable elements of a thrill ride that you would expect from a Jerry Bruckheimer action series," says Bromstad. "Equally important, it also features a great cast  Kelli Giddish is a breakout star as the lead."

Hmm, Giddish was supposed to be the breakout star for FOX's "Past Life," which was unceremoniously yanked from the schedule, presumably not to be reincarnated.

Besides "Chase," NBC previously announced they were picking up "Undercovers," "The Event," "Love Bites," and "Outsourced."
