From Kem Nunn and Alexandra Cunningham, the drama stars Hugh Laurie as a forensic neuropsychiatrist. The cast also includes Diane Farr, Lisa Gay Hamilton, Gretchen Mol, Paul Adelstein, and Ethan Suplee.
In the interview, Laurie says Chance is very different from House:
I agree. House was almost like chamber music. It was very heightened and very beautifully constructed. Chance is much more intimate, more vulnerable. The characters are actually revealing parts of themselves in a much less self-conscious way. I think House was aware of itself as a show — deliberately so. [Series creator] David Shore, who’s a genius, deliberately constructed it that way.”
But what about a second season? Hulu’s already ordered a season two, but Laurie’s not sure if there will be one:
I think we still have to earn it. I’m pretty sure that on page 784 of the contract there’s a small [cancellation provision].
I’m in a similar position with The Night Manager. In both cases, [Season 1 follows a novel] and then people go, “All right, now what do we do [in Season 2]?” I don’t know what the hell [a second season of Chance looks like]. And I can pretty confidently say [the producers] don’t either. Maybe they have a plan, and it’s all on a big board somewhere. We’ll just have to wait and see. Maybe we’ll have to put some time travel in it.”
Chance debuts today, October 19th, on Hulu.
