Sean Bean returns for as Richard Sharpe in "Sharpe's Peril", the sixteenth instalment of the ITV drama.
Using stunning locations throughout India including Orchha and Khajuraho, producers Malcolm Craddock and Muir Sutherland state; "India offers so many unique factors to a television drama, and excellent production value. We're taking advantage of wonderful vistas, exotic palaces, elephants and camels, the full vibrancy of this breathtaking country. It's an wonderful experience quite unlike anywhere in the West. Like us all, Sean is keen to return to this wonderful country, particularly as this time Sharpe is on the side of downtrodden villagers, fighting together against officers from the East India Company that he so despises for their airs and venality. It's classic Sharpe for a modern television audience."
Starring Sean Bean, Daragh O'Malley, Raza Jaffrey, Nandana Sen and Beatrice Rosen.
"Sharpe's Peril" is a 2 x 90' (or 1 x 100' international version) Celtic Films Entertainment/ Picture Palace Films/ Duke Street Films co-production for ITV.
