Netflix cast new police interrogation drama that sounds like nothing we've seen before
OK, sorry but this sounds legit.
Netflix have announced the cast for their upcoming police interrogation crime drama, Criminal.
The series will focus on 12 unique crime stories from around Europe as investigators struggle to decipher what has happened in several cases across the UK, Spain, Germany, and France.
Each of the episodes is shot in the country's own language and are written and directed by teams hailing from each of the spots.
David Tennant, Hayley Atwell and Katherine Kelly are among those cast for the UK episodes of the series, along with Lee Ingleby, Shubham Saraf, and Nicholas Pinnock.
Nathalie Baye, Jeremie Renier and Sara Giraudeau have been cast for the French episodes, Peter Kurth, Christian Berkel, Deniz Arora and Nina Hoss starring in the German ones, and Carmen Machi, Inma Cuesta and Eduard Fernandez in the Spanish episodes.
Netflix have called the series a "format bending revolutionary procedural” seeing as each of the episodes are set entirely inside of the police interrogation room.
"This stripped down, cat-and-mouse drama focuses on the intense mental conflict between detectives and suspects,” said the streaming giant.
All 12 episodes of Criminal were shot in Madrid, Spain.
The series is due for release this Autumn. You can check out the first teaser trailer here:
