Everyone’s favorite doctor is checking back in – sort of.

PEOPLE has an exclusive sneak peek at Hulu’s new original series Chance starring Hugh Laurie as a forensic neuropsychiatrist who gets caught up in the criminal underworld.

The former star of Fox’s House will take on a completely different role in the dark psychological thriller as Dr. Eldon Chance, a doctor who is sucked into a violent and dangerous cycle of mental illness, mistaken identity and police corruption. After making a bad decision about one of his patients, he finds himself targeted by the woman’s dangerous spouse, a volatile police detective.


The suspenseful trailer features Dr. Eldon Chance appearing on edge after getting in way over his head with his beautiful patient, Jaclyn Blackstone (Gretchen Mol) and feeling the wrath from her husband Raymond Blackstone (Paul Adelstein).

Chance, based on the book by Kem Nunn, premieres Oct. 19 exclusively on Hulu.
