Earlier in 2020, Sky TV celebrated the UK launch of a second series of their hit crime procedural Bulletproof with a complementary immersive digital experience, Bulletproof Interrogation. Players join two leading characters from the show (cops Bishop and Pike, played by Ashley Walters and Noel Clarke) in a tense sequence where they must help interrogate a serial killer bent on committing three murders. Created in partnership with Charisma.AI, the game deploys natural language processing and AI to allow fans to conduct a back and forth discussion with the suspect, where everything they say might influence the outcome.

Bulletproof the Interrogation borrows heavily from gaming, and content creators are increasingly looking to fuse the thrill of the gaming experience into traditional entertainment mediums. UK startup Maze Theory is currently developing an interactive gamescape based on the hit BBC TV drama Peaky Blinders. Players will be able to enter a meticulous recreation of the world of the Shelby crime syndicate, infiltrating their circle, earning their trust and helping them defeat a rival gang. Peaky Blinders: The Kings Ransom promises ‘humanlike’ interactions, made possible through advanced AI technology which will allow characters to respond in real-time to players’ words, gestures and body language.
