The Chase was a thriller series with different themes, but it usually involved someone on the run. Since the listener identified with the main character, they too, were desperately trying to escape the police dragnet, or elude the menace of the week. Some the scripts used on the series were previously heard on The Clock and Inner Sanctum Mysteries.
The Radio programming of the 1950's was in transition. Popular Television was beginning to make inroads into Radio's market share. The major networks were dividing their resources between Radio and Television in an effort to maintain their own market share in both media. NBC first envisioned The Chase as a new Television feature. This was not uncommon during the later 1940s and early 1950s. Several Radio features straddled both media, with varying success. NBC's Television version of The Chase was in production during May 1953, However the TV production was abandoned at about the same time the Radio version was pulled.
