Weds 10/19: Chance (HULU)
Beloved for the role of Dr. House in the hit medical drama House, many fans will be happy to see Hugh Laurie star in a new series that has him again playing a troubled doctor. This is more of a psychological thriller though, based on Kem Nunn’s novel of the same name, and Laurie’s character will not have too much time for wisecracking when he finds himself thrust in a world of deadly intrigue. Directed by Room filmmaker Lenny Abrahamson, the cast is rounded out by talented individuals like Gretchen Mol and Clarke Peters. Hulu has already green-lit the production for two seasons, so you can feel better about investing the time.
