The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin on Apple TV+ trailer – Apple TV+ unveiled the trailer for upcoming comedy-adventure series “The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin.”

The six-episode Apple Original, which stars Noel Fielding (“The Mighty Boosh,” “The Great British Bake Off”) as the legendary British highwayman, premieres on Friday, 1 March, with the first two episodes, followed by a new episode every Friday through 29 March.

In “The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin,” Dick Turpin (Fielding) sets out on a journey of wildly absurd escapades when he’s made the reluctant leader of a band of outlaws — and tasked with outwitting corrupt lawman and self-appointed thief-taker Jonathan Wilde (Hugh Bonneville).

In this irreverent retelling set in the 18th century, Turpin 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 lovable rogues, Turpin rides the highs and lows of his new endeavours, including a brush with celebrity, all whilst trying to escape the clutches of the thief-taker.

Starring alongside Fielding in the ensemble cast are Ellie White (“The Windsors”), Marc Wootton (“High & Dry”), Duayne Boachie (“Blue Story”), Bonneville (“Downton Abbey”), Tamsin Greig (“Episodes”), Asim Chaudhry (“The Sandman”), Dolly Wells (“The Outlaws”), Joe Wilkinson (“Sex Education”), Mark Heap (“Friday Night Dinner”), Geoff McGivern (“Free Rein”), Michael Fielding (“The Mighty Boosh“), Samuel Leakey (“Gretel & Hansel”) and Kiri Flaherty.

Produced by Apple Studios and Big Talk Studios, part of ITV Studios, “The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin” is created by Claire Downes, Ian Jarvis and Stuart Lane. The series is executive produced by Kenton Allen, Big Talk Studios (multi-BAFTA Award-winning producer of “Rev.,” “The Outlaws,” “Friday Night Dinner”), Noel Fielding, Victoria Grew, Big Talk Studios (“Back,” “We Are Not Alone”) and Ben Palmer.

Episodes one to three are directed by Palmer (BAFTA TV Award and Rose d’Or Award-winning “The Inbetweeners,” “The Inbetweeners Movie”) and episodes four to six are directed by George Kane (BAFTA TV Award-nominated “Timewasters,” “Inside No. 9,” “Crashing”). Episode one is written by Claire Downes, Ian Jarvis and Stuart Lane with Noel Fielding and episode two to six are written by Jon Brittain and Richard Naylor with Noel Fielding.
