Each episode follows the duo as they attempt to carry out their latest hit, only to be scuppered by their own “incompetence, bickering, and inane antics”.

Executive producer Myfanwy Moore said: “We are so excited to be working with the truly fantastic female comedy partnership that is Mel and Sue, who can brandish bullets and banter brilliantly in equal measure.”

Written by Joe Parham and Joe Markham with some script input from Mel and Sue, Hitmen will premiere on Sky One in 2019..
