Jack Whitehall’s Thriller/Comedy ‘Bounty Hunters’ Premieres On Sky 1 In October
“Jack Whitehall, action hero,” is not a phrase I thought I’d ever use, but thanks to his new tv show ‘Bounty Hunters‘, which starts on Sky 1, Wednesday, 25th October 2017 at 10pm, here we are!
When his antique dealer dad winds up in hospital following a mysterious accident, book-smart Barnaby Walker (Jack Whitehall) takes it upon himself to save the family’s cash-strapped business. What could possibly go wrong? Well, a dodgy deal masterminded by his dad (Robert Lindsay – ‘My Family’, ‘Spy’, ‘Atlantis’) leaves Barnaby £50,000 down and lumbered with a looted treasure. He’s determined to reclaim his cash, but to do so, he needs help. Big time.
Enter Nina Morales (Oscar® nominee Rosie Perez – ‘Do the Right Thing’, ‘Pure’, ‘Fearless’), a tough New Yorker who Barnaby’s sister (Charity Wakefield – ‘Wolf Hall’, ‘The Halcyon’, ‘Genius’) met while travelling. Nina and Barnaby couldn’t be more different. She’s a gun-toting, Brooklyn bounty hunter, while he drives a tiny G-Wiz car and lives in Wimbledon. She’s wanted by a dangerous Mexican drug cartel while he’s doing a PhD in Flemish textiles.
They team up on a mission to get his money back. But Barnaby’s quiet life soon spirals further out of control, when they’re forced into the paths of the police, terrorists and the Mexican cartel.
‘Bounty Hunters‘ is written by Whitehall and Freddy Syborn, who co-wrote ‘Bad Education’ together, and comes to Sky 1, Wednesday, 25th October 2017 at 10pm
