ITV has released the trailer for its new police comedy-drama Wild Bill, starring Rob Lowe.

In the series, the West Wing star plays a high-flying American cop Bill Hixon who winds up chief constable of the East Lincolnshire force so he can be with his young daughter.

Although initially billed as a drama, the trailer shows plenty of fish-out-of-water comedy, with Hixton calling his new beat 'a godforsaken cabbage patch'.

And when he speaks of the crime rate in Miami, where he came from, he's told : 'Are you boasting Bill? Brits don’t like boasters.'

Lowe has said of the show: 'I love Fargo, Better Call Saul, I love these shows where there’s a titular hero in the middle of it, but surrounded in a world in that is very odd, very different and really authentically intense and violent, and then really really sweet and emotional and then really really funny, all at once. It’s hard to do and our writers pulled a rabbit out of a hat.'

The series, which launches in June also stars Rachael Stirling, Angela Griffin, Tony Pitts and Bronwyn James.
