Show Dumped by Cinemax Isn't Dead Yet; 'X-Files' EP Joins as Showrunner THR

"The X-Files" executive producer Frank Spotnitz has joined as showrunner for a second season of a show that recently was dropped by Cinemax, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The producers, who are working on a second season of "Transporter," are talking with new U.S. partners to replace Cinemax as a stateside outlet for the show, the story says. The second cycle is in development with M6 in France and HBO Canada.

The first season of the show, which is based on the Luc Besson film franchise, performed well in Canada, France and some Fox International territories, the story notes.

Actor Chris Vance is still attached to the series, although his option period has ended and he would require a new deal to remain in the second cycle, the piece notes.
