In this sharp new comedy drama, an unlikely group of lawbreakers are forced together in a community payback project. Emmy and BAFTA winner Stephen Merchant writes, directs, and stars alongside Christopher Walken. When seven strangers are thrown together in a community service scheme, they realise they couldn’t be more different. Having broken the law, in their hometown of Bristol, is the one thing they have in common. As new friendships emerge, dark secrets are revealed. Combining crime thriller, character study and comedy, The Outlaws is a state-of-the-nation commentary with humour and heart.
