An unlikely detective duo are at the centre of UKTV's latest crime-drama We Hunt Together. The series follows the mismatched pair as they attempt to outsmart two killers on the run, and if this cat-and-mouse story sounds like your cup of tea, here's everything you need to know about We Hunt Together.
When & Where Will 'We Hunt Together' Air?
The new series will air on UKTV's Alibi (Sky channel 132), and will get underway at 10 p.m. on Wednesday, May 27.
What Is The Plot Of 'We Hunt Together'?
As the Radio Times reports, the series follows the story of DS Lola Franks and DI Jackson Mendy, a detective pairing who are forced to adjust to their dysfunctional partnership whilst trying to hunt down two star-crossed killers.
The killers in question, known as Baba and Freddy, became embroiled in murder following an attack on a date that wound up turning sour.
We Hunt Together is described as a "gripping twist on a classic cat-and-mouse story," which explores themes including "the intoxication of sexual attraction," and "the dangerous power of emotional manipulation."
Who's In The Cast Of 'We Hunt Together'?
The show's cast is led by Keeping Faith’s Eve Myles (who is rocking a brand new brunette hair do) and Dark Money star Babou Ceesay, who portray the characters of DS Lola Franks and DI Jackson Mendy, respectively. Elsewhere, Baghdad Central's Dipo Ola and The Halcyon star Hermione Corfield appear as wanted murderers, Baba and Freddy.
During a recent interview, Ceesay opened up about his latest role, revealing that We Hun Together's "central theme" is what first attracted him to the series.
"The central theme that is of interest to me is this idea of what creates a killer," he explained, before adding "essentially, it's about the damaged that do damage. One of the hardest things that it explores for me is the question of who is to blame. Is there something in these individuals that actually is happiest when they're living at that level of excitement."
As Variety reports, drama commissioner for UKTV, Philippa Collie-Cousins, also previously shared her thoughts on Alibi's newest addition — praising the work of show-writer Gaby Hull.
"We Hunt Together immediately stood out as a bold and original piece of writing," she commented. "Gaby Hull’s script will take viewers on a wild ride that encapsulates the freshness we are looking for as the Alibi brand matures."
