The cast has been announced for Bounty Hunters, the new Sky 1 show starring Jack Whitehall.

The comedy drama - which is set in Wimbledon, New York and Mexico - focuses on a British antiques dealer sorting out his family's cash-strapped antiques business.

Recently hospitalised after a mystery accident, Barnaby Walker's father Nigel had secretly dabbled in the "blood antique" market from within his cluttered Wimbledon antique shop.

When Barnaby unwittingly buys a "blood antiquity" looted from the war-torn Middle East, he calls on help from tough New York based bounty hunter Nina Morales, to return the statue and try to get his money back.

Whitehall will play Barnaby, with New York actor Rosie Perez as Nina. Joining them will be My Family star Robert Lindsay as Barnaby's father Nigel and Wolf Hall actor Charity Wakefield will play a "rogue, scatty and wild" character called Leah.

Other key cast roles announced today include Sophie Thompson, Bradley James, Ben Bailey Smith, Olga Merediz, Nigel Betts, Corey Johnson, Kyle Soller and Christian Ochoa.

The six part series has been written by Jack Whitehall and Freddy Syborn. The friends previously created Bad Education together.

Speaking at the time the show was announced, Jack Whitehall said: "It's a really ambitious show which brings together my and Freddy Syborn's love of comedy and action movies, so we really hope we can pull it off."

Bounty Hunters is currently in production and is set to air on Sky 1 and TV streaming service NOW TV in Autumn 2017.
