Series plot and production info
A new Indiana-Jones style action and adventure drama series Hooten & the Lady has premiered on Sky1 on September 16, 2016.

Series one was created by Jordan, James Payne, Sarah Phelps, Jeff Povey and Richard Zajdic and contains eight one-hour episodes.
The series portrays a pair of adventurers – an American tough guy Ulysses Hooten (Michael Landes) with a heart and a young British woman of noble descent, Lady Alex Spencer-Parker (Ophelia Lovibond). They travel to the most remote corners of the world seeking answers to the world’s most amazing mysteries. Looking for Percy Fawcett’s lost camp in the Amazon rainforest, searching for the last Faberge egg in Siberia, visiting the Himalayas, Roman catacombs, Alexandria – as the treasure hunter duo travels, they undergo a transformation from unwilling partnership to a perfect team where they complement each other.
Reviews and chances of renewal
Hooten & the Lady has been compared to Indiana Jones in that it is a quality production, yet the concept and execution is more suitable for a teen movie than one which targets adults. Although it is fun and captivating in its own way, it does feature rather stereotypical characters and situations. The series opened to an impressive 1.2 million viewers, but slipped to 0.8 million in the second week. The series has a 6.5/10 IMDb score, and while Sky1 has not made any announcements regarding a second installment, the chances of renewal seem rather strong.
Series 1 recap
The eight-episode freshman series of adventure drama Hooten and the Lady wrapped up on November 4, 2016. The season finale aired with an audience of 0.81 million viewers and featured Alex and Hooten`s adventures on a perfect Caribbean island on search for a pirate captain`s treasure. Alex`s wedding, delayed by their treasure hunt, finally occurs at the end of the episode. The posh and amusing adventure show has not yet been renewed for a second season, but the 7.1/10 IMDb rating demonstrates that there are numerous viewers who are tired of the procedural format and the never-ending reality series and are enjoying the simple and refreshing entertainment provided by Hooten & the Lady. Stay tuned for the news regarding a second season of the show.
