NBC adds Dallas-filmed Chase for next season

NBC's fifth new series pickup for next season, Jerry Bruckheimer's Chase, hits very close to home.

Its pilot episode recently was filmed in Dallas, with Kelli Giddish (Fox's quickly canceled Past Life) starring as U.S. Marshal Annie Frost, a "cowboy boot-wearing deputy whose sharp mind and unique Texas upbringing help her track down violent criminals on the run."

NBC entertainment president Angela Bromstead bills Giddish as "a breakout star." Her fellow U.S. Marshals are played by Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco (from Fox's filmed-in-Dallas Prison Break), Rose Rollins and Jesse Metcalfe.

Dallas Film Commission head Janis Burklund doesn't know whether the entire series will originate from North Texas. "We think they will be here, but nothing official from them yet," she said via email.

Fox's The Good Guys continues to film all 13 of its episodes in this area, with a sneak preview slated for May 19th.

As previously posted, NBC also has announced four other new scripted series for next season -- Undercovers, The Event, Love Bites and Outsourced.
