A few weeks ago we brought you the unlikely news that Hollywood’s Rob Lowe would be starring in a new ITV police show based in Lincolnshire, called Wild Bill.
Now the cast around him is starting to fill out.
The Bletchley Circle’s Rachael Stirling, Angela Griffin, Tony Pitts and Bronwyn James have joined a show that tells the story of high-flying US cop Bill Hixon (Lowe), who is appointed Chief Constable of the East Lincolnshire Police Force. When he lands in Boston, Lincolnshire, with his 14-year-old daughter Kelsey in tow, he’s hoping they can flee their painful recent past. But this unfamiliar, unimpressed community will force Bill to question everything about himself and leave him asking whether it’s Boston that needs Bill, or Bill that needs Boston?
Rounding out the cast is Anjli Mohindra (who we’re seeing in Dark Heart at the moment) as Deputy Chief Constable Lydia Price, Steffan Rhodri as DS Alex Blair, Divian Ladwa as PC Drakes, Anthony Flanagan as PC Sean Cobley and Vicki Pepperdine as pathologist, Broadbent.
Looks as though Lowe is having fun up in Lincolnshire:
Look out for this next year.
