ITV’s Wild Bill lands Rob Lowe as a producer and star

Rob Lowe will both star and produce in ITV’s upcoming crime drama Wild Bill, per a report from Vital Thrills. Lowe will play high-flying American cop, Bill Hixon, who is appointed Chief Constable of the East Lincolnshire Police Force in the U.K.

As an actor, Wild Bill is a larger than life character who’s outrageously articulate, has nothing to lose and revels in being an American fish out of water. As an executive producer, I’m excited to work with such talented partners and to come back to work in the UK, which I always love,” Lowe said about his dual roles.

Wild Bill is a creation of David Griffiths (The HuntedCollateral Damage), Kyle Killen (HaloMind Games) and Dudi Appleton and Jim Keeble (Silent WitnessThorne: Sleepyhead & Scaredycat). Keeble and Appleton will be head writers as well as showrunners.

Lowe will serve as an executive producer alongside Eleanor Moran (RomeBeing HumanWatership Down) and Rory Aitken (In DarknessWatership Down) on behalf of 42, and Tim Carter (TraitorsGarrow’s Law), Managing Director of ITV Studios label Shiver. Writers Dudi Appleton and Jim Keeble, creator David Griffiths, Kyle Killen, Scott Pennington and Keith Redmon from Anonymous Content also join the team as executive producers.

The drama will be directed by Lead Director Charles Martin (MarcellaSkinsWallander) and produced by Chris Thompson (Emerald CityThe Fear). Filming will take place around London and in Lincolnshire starting in November.
