New contemporary British crime drama Bulletproof starts tomorrow night (May 15th) on Sky One in the UK and it’s looking like one to watch.
Bulletproof is a 6-part series that follows two cops, Bishop (Noel Clarke) and Pike (Ashley Walters), as they chase down hardened criminals in London’s East End. On the surface Bishop and Pike have a lot in common, they are cool, smart, unapologetically street-wise and tough. They share a deep, fraternal relationship – and are always there for each other.
However, they come from very different backgrounds and their personal motivations and emotional lives outside the police force differ as a result. Pike is an aspirational family man, the son of a decorated police officer who’s determined to follow in his father’s footsteps, but not be in his shadow. Bishop grew up in care homes and on the streets, and never knew his father. Despite these differences Bishop and Pike are bonded by the same moral code and work brilliantly well together even when the chemistry between them looks set to explode.
