Based on the novel by Kem Nunn, Laurie plays Dr. Eldon Chance, a neuropsychiatrist who gets overly involved with the problems of one of his patients. His search for a solution leads him down some dark roads in his native San Francisco; a path that could affect his ongoing issues with a soon-to-be ex-wife and distancing relationship with their teenage daughter.
The psychological thriller is helmed by “Room” director Lenny Abrahamson and co-created by Nunn and Alexandra Cunningham (“Bates Motel,” “Aquarius”). The 1o-episode first season of “Chance” is set to premiere October 19 with new episodes airing weekly, exclusively on Hulu. Watch the trailer below.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
Based on the acclaimed novel by Kem Nunn, “Chance” is a provocative, psychological thriller that focuses on Dr. Eldon Chance (Laurie), a San Francisco-based forensic neuropsychiatrist who reluctantly gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness. After an ill-advised decision regarding an alluring patient who may or may not be struggling with a multiple personality disorder, Dr. Chance finds himself in the crosshairs of her abusive spouse, who also happens to be a ruthless police detective. In over his head, Dr. Chance’s descent into the city’s wayward underbelly, all while navigating the waters of a contentious divorce and tribulations of his teenage daughter, soon spirals into an ever deepening exploration of one of mankind’s final frontiers — the shadowy, undiscovered country of the human mind.
