Thanks to Target419 for uncovering four video clips from 'Human Target', the new series based on the DC/Vertigo comic, premiering January 17th on FOX TV.

It takes a brave, selfless man to make himself a “human target” in order to save the lives of those in danger. Based on the popular DC Comics graphic novel, HUMAN TARGET is a full-throttle action drama centered on CHRISTOPHER CHANCE (Mark Valley, FRINGE), a unique private contractor/security guard hired to protect. Call him what you like, because for Chance, it’s about one thing only: saving his clients’ lives. When there is an unusual or imminent threat that can’t be solved through “normal” means of protection, Chance is hired to completely integrate himself into his clients’ lives – to become the human target. If you’re a corporate manager whose disgruntled employee has gone violently off the deep end, Chance is your new auditor. If you’re the president of a bank who’s been tipped off to a potential heist, Chance is your unassuming bank teller. During each job, Chance, assisted by his business partner WINSTON (Chi McBride, “Pushing Daisies”) and hired gun GUERRERO (Jackie Earle Haley, “Watchmen”), puts himself directly in the line of fire as he races against time to save his client, while unraveling the truth behind the mission. With every new danger, Chance’s dark history will also unravel. Does anyone know who Christopher Chance really is, or what secrets lay buried in his past? What would make a man willingly become a HUMAN TARGET?

this looks like it will be a great show,  but where are the disguises hes supposed to assume the identity of the people he protects rather than being a human shield like shown in the clip, he is a human shield. did they drop the whole wearing other peoples faces concept... other than that its my only gripe this looks good...   i hope a paperback book series comes out of this... if this catches on im hopeing the other networks will do similar shows would like to see jon sable come back  to tv as well maybe even a new t.h.e. cat   series would be good....

Phantom, it looks like they dropped the disguise angle. The show's description says he poses as someone close to the target, rather than the target itself. It's kind of a weasle-around.

I think it's becaue they don't want their lead actor sitting out 80% of every episode like Rick Springfield did when this was a series 15 years ago.

Of course, that's the main hook of the character, so it's kind of weird that they're not using it.

Hey that's cool, we have had our eyes on Fox's Youtube where they are also posting up videos. http://humantargetonline.com/  Pardon our dust while we get our site up and running.  

I have been wondering the same thing.  Have they completely done away with disguises or might we get some in episodes to come.

I'm hoping it's something they'll integrate in to various episodes.  They don't need to make it the central focus, but they definitely shouldn't lose the angle entirely.
