Sky 1 Orders “Indiana Jones – Style” Drama
Sky 1 has ordered a new “Indiana Jones – style” drama, Hooten & the Lady, from Red Plant Pictures.
Hooten & the Lady stars Michael Landes (Love Soup) and Ophelia Lovibond (Guardians of the Galaxy) as adventurer Hooten and Lady Alexandria, who form a partnership to track down long lost treasures. These include a lost Amazonian city, the Buddha’s missing scroll and the lost tomb of Alexander the Great.
It is written by Tony Jordan, James Payne, Sarah Phelps, Jeff Povey and Richard Zajdlic. Filming will begin next month in Italy and South Africa.
Speaking about the exciting new commission, Sky 1 director Adam McDonald said: “Hooten & The Lady is gloriously ambitious and perfectly poised to take its place amongst the impressive line-up for an exciting year ahead of brand-new drama and comedy for Sky.”
Hooten & the Lady will comprise eight hour long episodes and is expected to premiere on Sky 1 next summer.
