EuropaCorp and Luc Besson are shooting 12 episodes of Transporter action as a Spin off to the Lucrative film series. They’ll be shooting in France and Canada at 4 million bucks an episode.

“‘Transporter — The Series’ fits in fully with the focus on international productions developed by Atlantique as part of Lagardere Entertainment,” said Candilis, Lagardere’s senior VP. “This proves that France, and by extension Europe, can be the driving force behind international productions when they are based on such strong concepts as Luc Besson’s ‘Transporter.'”

The Producers are in talks with major international television channels.
