About Bulletproof: South Africa

Having spent two seasons bringing the series’ trademark cinematic action to the streets of London, this time the boys are heading overseas to dive deep undercover in a brand new case.

Taking a much-deserved holiday in South Africa, the pair are ready for some sun, sea and serenity. Unfortunately for them, the rest and relaxation will have to wait as they get swept up in the kidnapping of a young girl. With time running out, the duo have to slip their protective vests under their Hawaiian shirts in order to track her down and solve a conspiracy in a three-part special that will bring viewers more action, more car chases and more adrenaline in a thrilling journey into the underworld of Cape Town.
