Series overview
 
Starring and executive produced by Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor Rob Lowe, Wild Bill is a fish-out-of-water crime drama following high-flying US police chief Bill Hixon, who is appointed Chief Constable in Boston, Lincolnshire. Landing in the UK with his teenage daughter Kelsey in tow, Bill is ready to tackle the county’s crime figures, armed with a range of statistics and algorithms with every intention of getting in and out as quickly as possible. However, Bill soon discovers the people of Boston are just as smart-mouthed, cynical and difficult to impress as he is, and the man who’s spent his life keeping the messiness of human intimacy at arm’s length is reluctantly propelled into frontline policing and forced to reconsider his relationship with those closest to him. 
 
Episode 2
 
Bill tries to reboot his authority by getting his team to focus on the difficult unsolved crimes, including that of the ‘Boston Bandit’ who was responsible for a series of post office robberies and a murder. However, Bill’s team are more interested in a mysterious amnesiac who has shot to local fame for playing the piano in the station.
 
Bill’s soon reaping the plaudits when he succeeds in linking the stranger to the notorious cold case, only to realise the truth is more complicated than it first appears.
 
Meanwhile, Bill’s professional relationship with Mary gets personal, Oleg pressures Muriel into betraying Bill, and Kelsey succeeds in getting Bill to finally engage with his dead wife’s memory.
