Apple TV+ today revealed the trailer for Criminal Record, the new eight-episode, one-hour crime thriller starring Academy Award winner Peter Capaldi and Critics Choice Award nominee Cush Jumbo as detectives in a tug of war over a historic murder conviction.

From BAFTA Award nominee Paul Rutman (Vera, Indian Summers), Criminal Record is a character-driven drama set in the heart of contemporary London.

BAFTA Scotland Award winner Elaine Collins (Shetland, Vera) executive produces alongside Rutman, Capaldi and Jumbo. BAFTA Award winner Jim Loach (Save Me Too, Oranges and Sunshine) directs the series.
