The Radio Times reports that Ashley Walters and Noel Clarke will star in the new Sky 1 series Bulletproof, as cop duo Bishop and Pike.
Growing up Bishop (Clarke) and Pike (Walters) had very different lives. Pike’s dad was the first black police commissioner and he grew up always trying to live up to his expectations, while Bishop grew up looking for a father figure as he was passed around foster homes, moving from school to school.
Their pasts have shaped their different approaches to life, and yet they have a love and respect for each other that seems unbreakable. Their friendship is yet to be properly tested until now…
Star and co-creator Noel Clarke said:
‘I’m ecstatic that the show Ashley, myself and Nick (Writer, director and executive producer Nick Love) 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!’
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 !!!
Bulletproof will be available to watch on Sky 1 and TV streaming service NOW TV in the UK and Ireland in 2018.
