Hulu picks up two seasons of Hugh Laurie-starring thriller

Hulu is looking to up its status in the original content game. Lucky for them Hugh Laurie is drawn to projects with snappy one-word titles. The former House star is set to play the titular role in Chance, a new psychological thriller series based on a novel by Kem Nunn. Hulu just picked the show up for not one, but two ten-episode seasons. Nunn is attached, as is director Lenny Abrahamson, showrunner Alexandra Cunningham, and producer Michael London. The series comes from Fox 21 TV Studios – its first foray into the SVOD space. Chance is slated to debut in late 2016.
