Filming has already started on the Sky 1 and Red Planet Pictures' action adventure drama.

As previously announced, Michael Landes and Ophelia Lovibond will play title characters Hooten and Lady Alexandra Lindo-Parker.

Jane, who will play Lady Tabitha Lindo-Parker, the fun and daring mother of Lady Alexandra, said: "The role of Lady Tabitha is a great part to sink my teeth into – she's not your average society woman, and has a keen sense of fun and effortless charm. She would certainly be first on the invite list to any dinner party!"

The eight-part series follows adventurer Hooten, who teams up with Lady Alexandra from the British Museum to track down lost treasures.

Each hour-long episode follows the duo on epic new adventures through jungles, deserts and underground cities.

Sky 1 Director Adam MacDonald said "Hooten & The Lady is gloriously ambitious and perfectly poised to take its place amongst the impressive line-up for an exciting year ahead of brand-new drama and comedy for Sky."
