sky delicious bounty hunters

Sky is making two new original series. The drama 'Delicious' is coming back for a second series, while Jack Whitehall will star in brand new action comedy 'Bounty Hunters'.

Both will air on Sky 1 sometime this year.

The first series of 'Delicious' notched up an average cumulative audience of 1.87 million when it aired in 2016, making it the most watched UK drama on Sky 1 that year. It stars Dawn French and Emilia Fox in "a compelling tale of love, sex, deceit and betrayal".

It reunites both stars with writer Dan Sefton and director Clare Kilner.

Meanwhile, 'Bounty Hunters' sees comedian Jack Whitehall team up with Oscar-nominated actress Rosie Perez.

Whitehall plays posh, uptight Barnaby Walker, who's tasked with sorting out his family's struggling antiques business after his father is injured in a mysterious accident. He unwittingly buys a blood antiquity looted from the war-torn Middle East, which sets off a chain of events that he's woefully unprepared for.

Enter tough New York bounty hunter Rita Morales (Perez), who's on the run having killed a member of a Mexican drug cartel.

The action promises to zip from New York, to London, to Mexico.

Adam MacDonald, director of Sky 1, said in a statement: "We can't wait to welcome 'Delicious' and 'Bounty Hunters' to Sky 1 in 2017. 'Delicious' delivered our largest average audience for a Sky 1 original drama in 2016, so we knew we had to put it back on the menu.

"Viewers can expect more love, more lies and and more lip-smacking dishes to be served up next time around.

"And with the unveiling of 'Bounty Hunters' and its incredible cast, we're set for an exciting series full of thrills, spills and laughter when it airs exclusively on Sky 1."
