The Outlaws ( previously titled The Offenders) follows seven strangers from different walks of life forced together to complete a Community Payback sentence in Bristol.
At first, they seem like archetypes we can easily pigeonhole, but gradually we see behind their façades, understand their hidden depths, and what made them the people they are today.
We are reminded that no one is all good or all bad. Everyone has a story. As their unlikely new friendships intersect with their complicated private lives, The Outlaws must unite to protect one of their own from Bristol’s most dangerous criminal gang.
The show is part crime thriller, and part character study – with humour and heart.
The new six-part series will air this Autumn on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK, and then later on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Nordic countries. Global Distribution is handled by BBC Studios.
