AppleTV+ Orders 8 Episodes of Drama 'Criminal Record' Starring Peter Capaldi and Cush Jumbo

AppleTV+ has today given a series order to the original drama series Criminal Record starring Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who) and Cush Jumbo (The Good Fight). Production on the 8-episode season is currently underway in London.

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 (Jumbo); the other a well-connected man determined to protect his legacy (Capaldi). The series touches on issues of race, institutional failure, and the quest to find common ground in a polarized Britain.

Paul Rutman created the drama. He will executive produce with Capaldi, Jumbo, Elaine Collins and director Jim Loach. Tod Productions and STV Studios will produce.
