Unfortunately for fans, the ABC channel is currently unavailable in the UK. Sob!
Though the channel hosts some hugely popular shows – including Grey’s Anatomy and Jimmy Kimmel Live – people living outside of the states can’t tune in.
Instead, it remains to be seen whether streaming networks like Now TV and Amazon Prime will record the show.
In the meantime, fans can hit the road with clips from Mark on ABC’s official YouTube channel.
When did Mark Labbett join The Chase in the States?
Mark was recruited in America for the second season of The Chase in a six-figure deal.
The 55-year-old will play the main role alongside the current hunters – and Danger! GOAT Candidates – James Holzhauer, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter.
A source previously said The sun that Mark had secretly flown to LA earlier this year to film the show.
The insider said, “ABC poached him earlier this year because they thought the current Chaser panel was missing a bit of spark.
“After a screen test, they found that Mark voted incredibly well with the US audience and was offered the appearance on-site.”
TV managers assume that Mark has a real Clark Kent look to himself
The television source added, “They anticipate Mark could become one of the UK’s biggest exports lately.
“Angelenos are known to be obsessed with health and weight. But TV managers assume that Mark has a real Clark Kent look – and he’s going to be a real hit with the ladies. “
“Angry, but not fast”
On Friday evening (June 5, 2021), Mark shared a new promo image for The Chase ABC on Instagram.
The image was designed to look like a billboard for an action movie, with Mark playing the lead role.
The Beast told its followers, “They renamed The Chase on ABC as a robbery movie I’m Angry But Not Fast #thechaseabc #abcnetwork.”
