Stars align for Britbox 
crime comedy series

Big names Stephen Merchant and Christopher Walken have teamed up for the hilarious first season of The Outlaws, starting today on Britbox.

In a collaboration that promises laughter and excitement, Stephen Merchant, known for his work in “The Office” and “Extras,” has brought together an all-star cast for a comedy crime caper. Joining him is the acclaimed Oscar-winner Christopher Walken, famous for his roles in “Catch Me If You Can” and “Pulp Fiction.”

Set in the vibrant city of Bristol, this story revolves around a motley crew of lawbreakers. From a promising Oxford-bound student and a down-on-his-luck corporate lawyer to an Instagram influencer and a small-time crook, fate throws them together for an unlikely community service sentence.

The seven strangers, harbouring resentment and coming from diverse backgrounds, must now put aside their differences to renovate a rundown community centre. However, when one of them becomes entangled in a dangerous underworld of organised crime, they find themselves uniting in ways they never expected.

As they navigate through legal trickery, budding romances, daring acts of heroism, and cases of mistaken identity, the group discovers they share more in common than they initially thought.

Described as a brilliantly silly crime comedy, the show is praised by The Guardian, stating that Christopher Walken steals the spotlight while Stephen Merchant’s creation “is warm, witty and surprisingly gritty”.
