New Sky Original drama Bulletproof is coming to Sky One
TV favourites Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters have joined forces to star in the action comedy Bulletproof, coming to Sky One on 15 May.
Clarke and Walter play police duo Bishop and Pike, who fight crime together on the streets of East London. As best mates, they know what makes each other tick as they were brought to together by their shared moral code, even though they had drastically different upbringings.
We know and love Clarke as the bad boy and director of the Kidulthood film series as well as a stint in Doctor Who. His on-screen partner in crime, Walters, made it to the mainstream as the protagonist - Dushane - in Top Boy. He also has a CV full of movies, including Get Rich or Die Tryin’.
Not only do the acting duo bring the story to life on the screen, they have been busy behind the scenes as creators of the series, alongside Nick Love (The Football Factory).
'Humour, action and emotion'
Sky has described the series as “packed full of humour, action and emotion, Bulletproof is about friendship, conspiracies and ghosts from the past.”
Star and co-creator Noel Clarke said: "I’m ecstatic that the show Ashley, myself and Nick created is here. We’ve worked many years in the industry, but never all together. We've grown and evolved as artists and this will be a series that fans and non-fans alike will be drawn to. Enjoy the ride!”
Since Sky announced it will be creating original content at the start of the year, it has seemed like a bid to keep streaming giants Netflix and Amazon Prime Video on their toes. It has even given Sky Cinema customers the extra advantage of watching movie premieres on the day of release from the comfort of your own home without having to go to the the cinema.
Ashley Walters said: "I am really excited to be working with Noel and Nick on this project. I have been inspired by both of them for years and collaborating with them on this will produce something amazing. Years in the making but finally here !!! #alwayswinning”.
'Raring to go'
The series is being produced for Sky by Vertigo Films and Company pictures and will air on Sky One on 15 May. International distribution is to be handled by Sky Vision. Executive producers are Allan Niblo, Michele Buck and Judy Counihan and the producer is Jon Finn.
Writer, director and executive producer Nick Love said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be making my first TV series for Sky 1 which is going to be full of action, heart and characters you will fall in love with. I am raring to go!”
