Golden Globe-winning actor Hugh Laurie ("Veep," "Night Manager," "House") stars as Eldon Chance, a San Francisco-based forensic neuropsychiatrist. After an ill-advised decision regarding an alluring patient who may or may not be struggling with a multiple personality disorder, Chance finds himself in the crosshairs of her abusive spouse, who also happens to be a ruthless police detective. In over his head, Chance's decent into the city's shadowy underbelly, all while navigating the waters of a contentious divorce and the tribulations of his teenage daughter, soon spirals into an ever deepening exploration of one of mankind's final frontiers — the shadowy, undiscovered country of the human mind.
The cast also includes Gretchen Mol, Lisa Gay Hamilton, Paul Adelstein, Ethan Suplee and Stefania LaVie Owen.
"Chance" is from Fox 21 Television Studios ("Homeland," "The Americans," "People V. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story"). Alexandra Cunningham ("Desperate Housewives," "Prime Suspect") and Kem Nunn, author of "Tapping the Source" and co-creator of "John from Cincinnati," adapted Nunn's novel and serve as executive producers alongside Michael London ("Milk," "Trumbo," "Sideways") and his Groundswell Productions, Laurie and Abrahamson.
