The upcoming crime thriller stars Academy Award and BAFTA award 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. The eight-episode series will have a two-episode premiere on Apple TV+ on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, followed by new episodes every Friday through February 23.
An anonymous phone call draws two brilliant detectives, DCI Daniel Hegarty (Capaldi) and DS June Lenker (Jumbo), into a confrontation over an old murder case. DS Lenker is a young woman in the early stages of her career, while DCI Hegarty is a well-connected man determined to protect his legacy.
Along with Capaldi and Jumbo, 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 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).
From BAFTA Award nominee Paul Rutman (Vera, Indian Summers), Criminal Record is a powerful, character-driven drama set in the heart of contemporary London. The series touches on the issues of race, institutional failure, and the quest to find common ground in a polarized Britain.
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).
