Hooten & the Lady is a British television series that follows the story of two treasure hunter partners, British Museum curator Lady Alexandra (Ophelia Lovibond) who teams up with hugely charismatic, roguish American adventurer Hooten (Michael Landes) in a series of global treasure-hunting escapades. It premiered on Sky 1 on 16 September 2016, and aired through 4 November 2016. The series premiered on The CW in the United States on 13 July 2017. It was cancelled by Sky 1 after one series in August 2017.
Travelling across the world together, these two initially unwilling partners search for the world's greatest mysteries. From the Amazon rainforest for Percy Fawcett's long-lost camp, to hunting across Siberia for the 51st Faberge egg, the two explore the world of the mythical and legendary. They travel from the snowy Himalayan Mountains in an attempt to track down the only scroll written by Buddha, to the catacombs of Rome to find the Libri Sibyllini, and to Alexandria on the hunt for Alexander the Great's lost tomb. A continuing storyline is of Alex's mother, also Lady Lindo-Parker, attempts to organise her daughter's wedding to her fiancé Edward.
