Apple TV+ has unveiled a first look at its upcoming comedy adventure series The Completely Made-Up Adventures Of Dick Turpin, starring Noel Fielding.

The six-part series sees Fielding playing the legendary highwayman. The episodes follow Dick Turpin as he sets out on a journey of wildly absurd escapades when he's made the reluctant leader of a band of outlaws - and tasked with outwitting corrupt lawman and self-appointed Thief Taker, Jonathan Wilde (Hugh Bonneville).

Apple TV+ explains: "In this irreverent retelling set in the 18th century, Dick is the most famous but least likely of highway robbers, whose success is defined mostly by his charm, showmanship, and great hair. Together with his gang of lovable rogues, Dick rides the highs and lows of his new endeavours, including a brush with celebrity, all whilst trying to escape the clutches of the Thief Taker."

Starring alongside Fielding and Bonneville is Ellie White as Nell Brazier, Marc Wootton as Moose Pleck and Duayne Boachie as Honesty Courage.
