Review: The Outlaws – Amazon Studios & BBC One – Coming April 1st

March 30, 2022 By

I got a chance to check out the new Stephen Merchant comedy, THE OUTLAWS. The Outlaws is coming April 1st to Amazon Prime Video.

From Amazon’s official Press Release:

The Outlaws (w/t) is a six-part series from multi-award-winning writer and director Stephen Merchant coming to BBC One in the UK and Amazon Prime Video in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The series follows seven strangers from different walks of life forced together to complete a Community Payback sentence in Bristol. As they become involved in each other’s lives, they also become involved with a dangerous criminal gang. At first, the outlaws seem like archetypes easy to 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. Academy Award-winning actor Christopher Walken becomes an Offender undertaking community service in his first lead British television role, alongside writer and director Stephen Merchant, with Rhianne Barreto, Gamba Cole, Darren Boyd, Clare Perkins and Eleanor Tomlinson.
