Netflix released a new trailer for their upcoming British procedural anthology series Criminal. What makes this series different is the fact that it takes place “exclusively within the boundaries of a police interview suite.” It is defined as “a stripped-down, cat-and-mouse drama that will focus on the intense mental conflict between the police officer and the suspect in question.”
The TV series is set in France, Spain, Germany, and the U.K., and the new trailer gives us our first real look at what’s coming our way. The series has a fabulous cast that includes David Tennant (Doctor Who) who plays a man “charged with murdering his teen step-daughter. The interrogators’ challenge in this ‘Criminal: UK’ Ep. 1 will be to break down his ‘no comment’ inscrutability.” The series also stars Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter), who is revealed in the trailer walking down a hallway as she prepares to be questioned by police.
The series was co-created by George Kay and Jim Field Smith, and they will work as showrunners and executive producers. It’s also revealed that the episodes will be in the local language of the country its set in. Those episodes will also be written and directed by people from their own countries.
Watch the teaser below. Criminal will air on Netflix on September 20th.
