While it is not my favorite and I know that you are talking about a chase as being the major storyline of the whole show, but the Dukes Of Hazard always had a car chase in every episode.

I was thinking only about the shorts, but they did have TV series; so I've added it to the list.

Can you change the entry to "The Dukes Of Hazard" in away so that not to insult policemen every where. Please change it from "to outrun the (incompetent) long arm of the law." to "to outrun the combined forces of Boss Hogg, the corrupt incompetent Sheriff Roscoe Coltrane, and Boss Hogg's other evil confederates. " Please remember that Enos and Cletus were honest cops forced, by Sheriff Roscoe's orders, to chase the Dukes.

Suggestion, think SciFi too plus other genres like fantasy and westerns. The chase was a staple of Science fiction. Also remember hunting is chasing.
Science Fiction series suggestions: both "Battlestar Galactica" series. While the battlestar leads a fleet of ships of the tweleve tribes of humans across the galaxy to find the thirteenth tribe on planet earth, they are chased by the Cylons.
"Firefly" - While Malcom "Mal" Reynolds and his renegade crew do odd jobs and heists under the Alliance's nose, the Alliance is searching for River Tam and her brother, Simon, who are abroad Mal's ship, Serenity.

Westerns:
"Alias Smith And Jones" (1971) . Anonymous' plot summary "Hannibal Heyes and Kid Curry, two of the most wanted outlaws in the history of the West, are popular "with everyone except the railroads and the banks", since "in all the trains and banks they robbed, they never shot anyone". They are offered an amnesty on condition that they stay out of trouble for a year and that they don't tell anyone about it. With a view to keeping their noses clean they adopt the identities of Smith and Jones and use all of their ingenuity keeping out of the way of the law. "
Or simply use the tag line, "Two ex-outlaws try to go straight...but the price on their heads keeps a posse on their trail."

Also "The Fugitive" is really a double chase. While Kimble is being chased by Lt. Gerard, Kimball himself is searching and chasing the one armed man who framed him. Can you modify that entry to reflect that?
