Deadline is reporting that a major network is moving forward with the new Transporter TV show, based on the hit movie franchise from Luc Besson's EuropaCorp.

Production on the $48 million 12-part series will start early next year, with the first episodes to premiere early November.

EuropaCorp is also working on a Taken TV series, after Taken 2 begins filming in the spring with Liam Neeson. Pierre-Ange Le Pogam is still locking down a director.

Luc Besson is currently filming Lock-Out, a $30 million sci-fi action movie starring Guy Pearce as an astronaut who has to rescue Maggie Grace (Lost) from an orbital prison riot - think Escape From New York in space - is currently shooting in Poland and will wrap just before Christmas. FilmDistrict will release in the US early 2012.
