British television drama series 'Bulletproof' stars Ashley Walters and Noel Clarke in lead roles. While the show was first broadcast on Sky One in 2018, the series has been renewed for a second installment comprising of six episodes by The CW. The plot revolves around two childhood friends-turned-detectives.
Clarke told Deadline, “Ashley and I have known each other for a while and he came to me with an idea for us to work together. We came up with a treatment, which found its way to Vertigo Films and Sky loved the ambition, they wanted something original and vibrant and aspirational." The actors also told the publication that the series was inspired by films such as 'Lethal Weapon' and 'Bad Boys', saying that "The humor and funny moments come from the relationships between the characters".
'Bulletproof' will premiere on August 7 at 8 p.pm in a Wednesday night slot. The show was originally scheduled to premiere on Sunday, July 28.
The show follows two undercover cops, Bishop and Pike as they chase hardened criminals in London’s East End. Detectives and best friends, the two investigate traffickers, drug dealers, and armed robbers, whilst being overseen by their boss Sarah Tanner.
Noel Clarke plays the role of Aaron Bishop, an NCA detective, in the show. Clarke appeared in and wrote the screenplay for 'Kidulthood' and wrote, directed, and starred in the sequels, 'Adulthood' and 'Brotherhood'.
Ashley Walters plays the role of Ronald "Ronnie" Pike Jr, another NCA detective. The actor has played key roles in films like 'Bullet Boy' (2004), 'Get Rich or Die Tryin' (2005) and crime drama series 'Top Boy'.
Other actors on the show include: Lindsey Coulson as Sarah Tanner, Christina Chong as Nell McBride, Lashana Lynch as Arjana Pike, Mandeep Dhillon as Kamali Khan, Jason Maza as Chris Munroe, Clarke Peters as Ronald Pike Sr, David Elliot as Tim "Jonesy" Jones, Caroline Goodall as Charlotte Carmel, Emma Rigby as Dr. Sophie Latimer and Jodie Campbell as Ali Pike.

Love is also the executive producer on the series along with Michele Buck, Judy Counihan and Allan Niblo.
Produced by Vertigo Films and Company Pictures, the show's distribution is handled by Sky Vision.
