Human Target is an American action drama television series broadcast by Fox in the United States. Based loosely on the Human Target comic book character created by Len Wein and Carmine Infantino for DC Comics, it is the second series based on this title developed for television. Developed by Jonathan E. Steinberg, Human Target premiered on CTV in Canada and on Fox in the United States in January 2010. Fox has renewed Human Target for a second season which will premiere on November 17, 2010.
The series follows the life of San Francisco-based Christopher Chance (Mark Valley), a unique private contractor, bodyguard and security expert hired to protect his clients. Rather than taking on the target's identity himself (as in the comic book version), he protects his clients by completely integrating himself into their lives, to become the human target. Chance is accompanied by his business partner Winston (Chi McBride) and hired gun Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley). He puts himself on the line to find the truth behind the mission. Even his own business partner Winston doesn't know what drove him towards this life.
The Old Man's real name, Joubert, is only given in the press release and in the on-screen captioning when he is speaking off-camera on the telephone.
On May 18, 2009, Fox announced that Human Target would premiere mid-season. The show is filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia.
