Sky One Orders Three-Part ‘Bulletproof’ Special

Bulletproof is extending its run. Sky One has ordered a three-part special for their cop drama. That is on top of the previously commissioned second season, which is expected to air in the spring.

The special, which is eyed for an autumn 2020 premiere, will follow Bishop and Pike as they travel across the world to sunnier climes in South Africa, where we will see more action, more car chases and a thrilling journey into the underworld of Cape Town.

Bulletproof follows police duo Bishop and Pike – two best mates, bonded by the same moral code despite their very obvious differences. The drama series – which was created by Noel Clarke, Ashley Walters and Nick Love – is produced by Vertigo Films and Sky Studios and stars Noel Clarke, Ashley Walters, David Elliot, Lucie Shorthouse, Jason Maza, Lindsey Coulson, Olivia Chenery, Ben Tavassoli, Stavros Zalmas, Gina Bellman, Tom Forbes, Vanessa Vanderpuye, Lee Ross and Gala Gordon.

The show’s second season sees Bishop and Pike going undercover to infiltrate an international crime empire. Their chase for justice will take them from the streets of London to Amsterdam and Cyprus, where they will have to risk everything, including their police badges, to succeed. The executive produers are Paul Gilbert for Sky, Allan Niblo for Vertigo Films, Nick Love, Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters. The special and the second season were both commissioned by Sky’s Managing Director of Content Zai Bennett and Sky’s Director of Drama and Sky Studios Cameron Roach.

Alongside the three-part special, the Bulletproof franchise is also expanding into the realm of gaming. Sky has partnered with Charisma.ai, to launch an immersive Bulletproof Interrogation Game. In the game, players will help Pike and Bishop prevent a series of murders. A suspected serial killer has been arrested and will only talk to you. They have lined up three potential victims and what you say will affect who is spared and who is not. It’s a race against time to get the information Bishop and Pike need from the suspect. Act fast, and you’ll be able to save each of the victims, but who is really interrogating who…? It is set to launch on Sky.com early next year.
