TV show description:
A British adventure drama, the Hooten & The Lady TV show centers on American treasure hunter Ulysses Hooten (Landes) and his British counterpart, Lady Alexandra Lindo-Parker (Lovibond). The series follows this unlikely duo of polar opposites and they travel the globe in pursuit of legendary relics.
Adventurous to the point of being rash, Hooten is a charming loner, who frequently ends up in thorny circumstances. He is, however, an honorable soul at his core.
Meanwhile, the aristocratic Lady Alex is a curator at the British Museum and tends to operate by the book. Still, she loves to travel to far-flung locales, like her heroes Percy Fawcett, Howard Carter, David Livingstone, and Mary Kingsley.
Alex’s best friend, Ella (Hynes) is both highly intelligent and adept in many different areas. Alex can count on her support and assistance, no matter how many miles separate them. At the museum, they both report to Clive (Parkes), who also keeps careful track of Alex, despite her globe-trotting.
Lady Lindo-Parker (Seymour) is Alex’s cultured, cosmopolitan mother, who meets Hooten in a swanky Roman wine bar. Not one to shy away from candor, she makes it clear she is not his biggest fan.
An attractive man, Edward (Bailey) is Lady Alex’s eager fiancé. Although he can’t wait for their wedding, Alex’s itinerary leaves them little time to see one another.
After Hooten and Alex meet in the Amazon jungle, this implausible pair partners up to search the world for obscure artifacts and other mysterious objects. Thanks to their different natures, their partnership is often a bit bumpy. Still, practical considerations and the risky nature of their quests bring them together, as they travel to places including Bhutan, Moscow, Rome and Egypt, on the hunt for missing treasure.
Episode #8 — The Caribbean
Alex (Ophelia Lovibond) puts her wedding in jeopardy when she follows Hooten (Michael Landes) to an idyllic island in the Caribbean to hunt for the long lost pirate treasure.
First aired: September 11, 2017.
