Apple TV+ has unveiled a glimpse at Criminal Record, its upcoming eight-episode thriller starring Academy Award and BAFTA winner Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who, The Thick of It), and Laurence Olivier Award and Critics Choice Award nominee Cush Jumbo (The Good Wife, The Good Fight, The Beast Must Die) as detectives in a tug of war over a high-profile murder case. Criminal Record will make its global debut on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes on Friday 12 January 2024, followed by new episodes every Friday until 23 February.
From BAFTA Award nominee Paul Rutman (Vera, Indian Summers), Criminal Record is a powerful, character-driven drama set in the heart of contemporary London. An anonymous phone call draws two brilliant detectives into a confrontation over an old murder case – one a young woman in the early stages 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 quest to find common ground in a polarized 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 Philosopher'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).
