Take a first look at crime thriller Criminal Record on Apple TV+
Criminal Record debuts on Apple TV+ with its first two episodes on Friday, January 12, 2024, followed by new episodes every Friday through February 23.
Here’s how Apple described the show:
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.
Apple TV+ also credited the show’s extensive and accomplished cast:
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).
Tod Productions and STV Studios produced the series for Apple TV+. BAFTA Scotland Award winner Elaine Collins (Shetland, Vera), Rutman, Capaldi and Jumbo served as executive producers. BAFTA Award winner Jim Loach (Save Me Too, Oranges and Sunshine) and Shaun James Grant (The Devil’s Hour) directed the show.
