BUCKLE UP: Vertigo Films Announces new Bulletproof Interrogation Game and Three Part Special from Noel Clarke
Buckle up: The Bulletproof ride continues with a new interrogation game and three part special confirmed
After a smash hit first series, Sky original drama Bulletproof returns for a second series in 2020, and to celebrate, Sky has partnered with Charisma.ai, to launch an immersive and gripping Bulletproof Interrogation Game.
In addition to the second series, which is due to air in Spring, Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters have announced that Vertigo Films is producing a three part special, coming to Sky One and NOW TV in Autumn 2020.
Bulletproof Series 2 sees Bishop and Pike going undercover to infiltrate an international crime empire. Their chase for justice will take them from the streets of London to Amsterdam and Cyprus, where they will have to risk everything, including their police badges, to succeed.
Soon after the series end, fans can gear up for the Bulletproof special, which will see Noel and Ashley travelling across the world to sunnier climes in South Africa, where we will see more action, more car chases and a thrilling journey into the underworld of Cape Town.
To give fans a taster of Bishop and Pike’s world, Sky and Charisma.ai will be launching the Bulletproof Interrogation Game on Sky.com at the beginning of 2020, where players are put at the heart of the action-packed cop drama, as they become an active participant in a crime story, taking direction from our favourite cop duo.
During the interactive experience, you (‘the player’) help Pike and Bishop prevent a series of murders. A suspected serial killer has been arrested and will only talk to you. They have lined up three potential victims and what you say will affect who is spared and who is not. It’s a race against time to get the information Bishop and Pike need from the suspect. Act fast, and you’ll be able to save each of the victims, but who is really interrogating who...?
You will also take part by speaking – with your voice via your laptop – to the suspect and to characters from the show who provide direction and support in the interrogation.
The launch of the Bulletproof Interrogation Game is the latest example of Sky’s innovative storytelling, bringing cutting-edge technologies to customers.
Executive Producer Allan Niblo, for Vertigo Films, said “Bulletproof is a show that has always broken new ground, and the Interrogation Game utilises cutting edge AI and means that fans can get into its world like never seen before. It’s a tremendously exciting new universe”.
Guy Gadney, CEO for Charisma.ai said “Charisma.ai powers a new form of interactive storytelling that reaches new audiences, allowing them to play a part in the narrative and meet the characters they are passionate about, We are very excited to be working with Sky and Vertigo to set the new standard in this style of interactive storytelling."
Cameron Roach, Director of Drama, Sky Studios said, “We are thrilled to be continuing to grow the Bulletproof franchise , with our special airing hot off the heels of Series 2, and our new Interrogation Game bringing the show’s brand to life.”
The Bulletproof three part special is a Sky Studios and Vertigo Films production. The show was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content, Sky UK and Ireland, and Cameron Roach, Director of Drama, Sky Studios. Executive Producers are Paul Gilbert for Sky, Allan Niblo for Vertigo Films, Nick Love, Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters.
