Human Target Premiere on Fox

ht_walkthree_plates_113rcb-375x500On Sunday, January 17th, Fox is having a preview event. Based on the DC comic, Human Target is about Christopher Chance, a man with varied abilities and expertise, who hires himself out as a personal bodyguard.

I was lucky enough to receive an early screener of the show and loved every minute of it. It’s and action-packed thrill ride with heart. I haven’t read the comics yet, but I’ll definitely be watching the show.
