Watch Hugh Laurie In The First Trailer For Hulu’s ‘Chance’

Hulu released the first trailer for its new original series ‘Chance’ starring Hugh Laurie as Eldon Chance.

The series is based on the novel by Kem Nunn. Laurie plays a forensic neuropsychiatrist who reluctantly gets sucked into a dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption, and mental illness.

According to USA Today, Laurie consulted with a neuropsychiatrist and learned that practitioners can’t heal patients in the way other doctors do. “He said, ‘The best I can do is manage incredibly damaged people (and) find the least bad option. Nobody leaves my office doing cartwheels,’ ” Laurie said.


‘Chance’ will run for two seasons of ten episodes with a definitive ending.

The series also stars Diane Farr as Christina Chance (Eldon Chance’s ex-wife), Lisa Gay Hamilton as Suzanne Silver, Stefania LaVie Owen as Nicole Chance (Eldon Chance’s daughter), Greta Lee as Lucy, Gretchen Mol as Jaclyn Blackstone, Paul Adelstein as Raymond Blackstone, Ethan Suplee as D, and Clarke Peters as Carl.

‘Chance’ premieres on Hulu on October 19.
