Bulletproof (The CW) -- premieres 8/7/19



The CW Network announced today a new premiere date for the summer drama BULLETPROOF, moving to Wednesday, August 7 (8:00-9:00pm ET). Additionally, TWO SENTENCE HORROR STORIES moves to a later time (9:00-9:30pm ET) on its premiere night Thursday, August 8. The adrenalin-fueled action thriller BULLETPROOF follows two undercover cops, Bishop (Noel Clarke, "Star Trek: Into Darkness") and Pike (Ashley Walters, "Top Boy") as they chase down hardened criminals in London's East End. Despite their differences, Bishop and Pike work brilliantly together even when the chemistry between them looks set to explode. Full of grit and sometimes gloss, BULLETPROOF is stylish and funny with entertaining, riveting criminal cases in each episode. BULLETPROOF is from Vertigo Films and Company Pictures, with executive producers Allan Niblo ("Britannia," "Monsters"), Michele Buck ("Endeavour," "Midsomer Murders"), Judy Counihan ("No Man's Land," "Fresh Meat"), Nick Love ("The Football Factory," "The Sweeney"), Noel Clarke, and Ashley Walters. BULLETPROOF, a Sky Original, was co-funded and distributed internationally by Sky Vision.

PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
∑ Ashley Walters as Pike
∑ Noel Clarke as Bishop

CREW INFORMATION:
∑ Allan Niblo as EP
∑ Ashley Walters as EP
∑ Judy Counihan as EP
∑ Michele Buck as EP
∑ Nick Love as EP
∑ Noel Clarke as EP
6 episodes.

A UK SkyOne import for the summer.

I'll give it a chance because Noel Clarke was excellent in The Level, another British crime thriller series from a couple years back.

A strange show for The CW to get the rights to. A British buddy cop action series.

Oh nice! Iíd come across this recently while looking up what Noel Clarke had been working on. I assumed it would pop up on Netflix or Amazong eventually.

Re: Bulletproof (The CW) -- premieres 8/7/19

We checked this out the other day. Wife was checked out before the credits even hit. It definitely has a slower pace of a UK show. I liked some elements, but things took a while to get going and nothing gelled well for the main characters. Itís almost like theyíre played as a riff on Bad Boys, except it doesnít come off.

I actually thought the ending was interesting, mostly because it happened organically. Plus it sets up a bit of whatís next.

Since Iím solo from here, Iíll check out one or two more to see how things go before deciding if I watch all six.

I watched the 1st episode. Didn't care for the heavy accents.

I watched episode 2, which I found to be an improvement over episode 1. The case theyíre working leads to a bigger plot and has more action. I feel like they could have started here for a faster paced start, it I guess episode 1 gives you a lead in to the characters.

I've watched other British shows and didn't have a problem understanding them. This seems to be over the top.
