For those who did not really watch island of Love on Wednesday night (June 12), there was a brand new TV show that amused the audience … even if it annoyed them quite a bit.

Wild bill is a comedy drama starring Hollywood actor Rob Lowe as senior police officer Bill Hixon, who moved from Miami to Boston, Lincolnshire.

ITV describes the new six-part series as follows: "He lands in Boston, Lincolnshire, with the teenage daughter Kelsey, hoping to escape her recent painful past.

"However, this unfamiliar, unimpressed community will force Bill to question everything about himself and ask him if it's Boston that needs Bill, or Bill that needs Boston?"

Although the show is set in Lincolnshire, many people could not understand why everyone sounded like they were from Yorkshire …

And do not mention Rob Lowe's accent …

"Wild bill is a completely unnatural fit by nature, and that attracted me when I read the script for the first time. "

Wild bill will be on ITV next Wednesday (19 June) at 9pm.
