Apple TV+ has released a selection of sneak peek images of its forthcoming crime thriller “Criminal Record.” The eight-episode series features Academy Award and BAFTA winner Peter Capaldi (“Doctor Who,” “The Thick of It”) and Laurence Olivier and Critics Choice Award nominee Cush Jumbo (“The Good Wife,” “The Good Fight,” “The Beast Must Die”) as detectives locked in a battle of wills over a high-profile murder case.
From BAFTA Award nominee Paul Rutman (“Vera,” “Indian Summers”), “Criminal Record” is a compelling, character-driven drama set in modern-day London. A mysterious phone call brings together two talented detectives into a confrontation over an old murder case – one a young woman at the start of her career, the other a well-connected man determined to protect his legacy. The series touches on issues of race, institutional failure and the search for common ground in a polarised Britain.
Starring Capaldi as ‘Detective Chief Inspector Daniel Hegarty’ and Jumbo as ‘Detective Sergeant June Lenker,’ the cast of “Criminal Record” also features Charlie Creed-Miles (“King Arthur,” “Wild Bill”), Dionne Brown (“Queenie”), Shaun Dooley (“Official Secret,” “The Woman in Black,” “The Awakening”), Stephen Campbell-Moore (“The Bank Job,” “Masters of the Air”), Zoë Wanamaker (“Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” “My Week with Marilyn”), Rasaq Kukoyi (“Andor,” “His House”), Maisie Ayres, Aysha Kala (“The Undeclared War”), BAFTA TV Award winner Cathy Tyson (“Help”) and Tom Moutchi (“Famalam,” “The Hustle”).
“Criminal Record” is produced for Apple TV+ by Tod Productions and STV Studios, and executive produced by BAFTA Scotland Award winner Elaine Collins (“Shetland,” “Vera”), Rutman, Capaldi and Jumbo. The series is directed by BAFTA Award winner Jim Loach (“Save Me Too,” “Oranges and Sunshine”) and Shaun James Grant (“The Devil’s Hour”).
“Criminal Record” will make its global debut on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes on Friday, January 12, 2024, followed by new episodes every Friday through February 23.
