I see David Tennant, I CLICK. I see David Tennant in a new crime series, I lose my utter shit. So here we are. Netflix has just dropped a video announcement, revealing the cast of its new multinational series called Criminal.
Per Deadline, Criminal is a procedural set in France, Spain, Germany, and the UK. Each country has three 45-minute episodes so that’s 12 episodes in total, in its local language. The series comes from Killing Eve writer George Kay and Jim Field Smith, the director of She’s Out of My League.
According to its synopsis, the series will introduce viewers to 12 unique crime stories set exclusively within the confines of a police interrogation suite.
Netflix describes the show 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.”
Nicholas Pinnock (Marcella, Counterpart), Katherine Kelly Lee Ingleby, Mark Stanley (Dark River, Hellboy 2019), Rochenda Sandall (Line of Duty), and Shubham Saraf star in the UK episodes and Tennant, Hayley Atwell (Captain America, Black Mirror), Youssef Kerkour (Another Day of Life, Redemption), and Clare-Hope Ashitey (Seven Seconds, Children of Men) guest star.
Jérémie Renier and Nathalie Baye – to name two – will star in the French episodes; Peter Kurth and Christian Berkel in the German episodes; and Carmen Machi and Inma Cuesta in the Spanish.
