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 6
 
The discovery of a pyre of bodies puts Bill on the hunt for Frank McGill, a hitman notorious for his weapon of choice: a nail-gun.
 
However, having been put into witness protection years earlier after turning in other members of the Maguire gang which he worked for, Frank is now off-grid. Bill sets his sights on tracking him down.
 
Meanwhile, DS Blair is released on bail after information is leaked regarding the unlawful obtaining of key DNA, Commissioner Metcalfe discusses the financial benefits of selling off a disused training facility and the pressure mounts for Bill to resign.
