Noel Fielding transforms into Dick Turpin for new Apple series

by | Apr 12, 2022 | All, TV News

Apple have announced a series order for a new untitled comedy-adventure series starring Noel Fielding (“The Mighty Boosh,” “The Great British Bake Off”).

Fielding will star as Dick Turpin, the legendary British highwayman. In this irreverent retelling, 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 loveable rogues, Dick rides the highs and lows of celebrity — and does what he can to escape the clutches of the Thief Taker General.

Executive producers are Kenton Allen, Fielding, Victoria Grew, Matthew Justice and Palmer.
