Sky’s breakout cop show Bulletproof relocates from London to South Africa for a three-part action special, which will air on Sky One January 20, 2021.
After two ratings winning series of the Sky Original, Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters reprise their roles as cop buddies Pike and Bishop, for Bulletproof: South Africa. Produced by Vertigo Films, the mini series sees the boys take a much-needed vacation from their day-job and head to Cape Town, South Africa.
Predictably for our two holidaymakers, things don’t quite go to plan. While trying to relax after a tough year, Bishop, Pike and his family soon find themselves caught up in the kidnap of a young girl. Having befriended the young girl’s parents earlier that day, Bishop and Pike decide it’s their duty to use their expertise to help the couple win their daughter back. The kidnappers demand an unreasonable reward for the safe return of the girl, but have no idea who they’re now up against.

“We’re really excited to see TV’s favourite cop duo back in action, but transported from the mean streets of London to one of the most beautiful coastlines on the planet,” says Paul Gilbert, Executive Producer for Sky, who goes on to describe the adventure as a “New Year thrill ride to die-hard fans of the show and new viewers alike.”
Allan Niblo, co-founder of Vertigo Films, cautions: “Expect carnage, mayhem and comradery as they take on formidable new enemies.”
