Hmm, this could turn out interesting. Human Target has been picked up by Fox for a January 2010 premiere. It’s produced by McG (Terminator: Salvation and Charlie’s Angels) and Simon West (Con Air and Tomb Raider) and is based on “popular” DC Comics graphic novel (I’ve never heard of it before, have you?).
Human Target stars Mark Valley (Fringe) as Christopher Chance, a unique private eye and bodyguard, who impersonates his clients in order to eliminate any threats (thus becoming a human target). As sidekicks we get Chi McBride (Pushing Daisies) and Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen). The pilot episode guest stars Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galacica).
Here are a couple of clips that Fox has released:

These clips do nothing to excite me for this new series. While it looks fine, it seems a little boring. I have no idea how the graphic novel is, but Human Target looks a little too procedural for me. I want to like it because of the actors, but it will need that red line to really hook me.
