Transporter: The Series is a French-Canadian action-adventure television series based on the Transporter film series created by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen which follows the film trilogy by continuing the adventures of Frank Martin, a professional freelance courier driver for hire who will deliver anything, anywhere – no questions asked – for the right price, and lives by three, unbreakable rules... which he constantly breaks.
Frank Martin is The Transporter. You want something moved, moved fast, and moved right, you get Frank Martin. He carries anything, anywhere, no questions asked.
Ex-Special Forces, he's acquired the driving, fighting and survival skills to make the delivery on schedule, and he never quits until the package is where it's supposed to be.
There are rules:
#1 – Never Change the Deal
#2 – No Names
#3 – Never Open the Package
Frank's a regular working man, a good guy, with a clear moral code. Follow the rules; everything goes smoothly. Unfortunately for Frank, nothing ever goes smoothly, because people rarely follow the rules.
Which makes Frank's job very difficult and very dangerous. The cops chase him, the bad guys chase him, women track him down... But he never changes the deal: Frank Martin is a driven man.
From Paris and Berlin to Geneva, New York and points beyond – dropoffs and pickups, freight yards and luxury hotels, chalets, warehouses, nightclubs and finally to his beautiful home on the shores of the Mediterranean: this is the life of The Transporter.
One Man. One Car. The Transporter...
