New Claustrophobic Netflix Series 'Criminal' Is Filmed Entirely Inside A Police Interview Suite
With autumn nearing ever closer, the desire to stay in and mainline TV series' is getting too tempting.
Criminal, filmed in four languages across four different countries, is one the streaming service's most ambitious projects to date.
Described as a "stripped down, cat-and-mouse drama" which "focuses on the intense mental conflict between detectives and suspects," the entire series takes place within the confines of a police interview suite, you know, to really ramp up that claustrophobia.
The 12-part series is comprised of 12 unique stories that are set in four different countries: France, Spain, Germany and the UK.
There will be three episodes set in each country (and spoken in local language), but all fall under the same series, and will be subtitled, so you can enjoy them all. Geddit?
The UK episodes see a starry lineup take seats in the interview room, including Doctor Who's David Tennant, The Duchess's Hayley Atwell, Marcella's Youssef Kerkour, and Exodus's Clare-Hope Ashitey.
Regular cast include Katherine Kelly, Lee Ingleby, Nicholas Pinnock, Mark Stanley, Rochenda Sandall, and Shubham Saraf.
The UK portion is directed by Jim Field Smith (Endeavour, The Wrong Mans) while George Kay from Killing Eve fame in the showrunner.
Global stars from the rest of the series include France's Nathalie Baye, Jérémie Renier, and Sara Giraudeau; Germany's Peter Kurth, Christian Berkel, Deniz Arora and Nina Hoss; and Spain's Carmen Machi, Inma Cuesta, Eduard Fernández.
A teaser trailer released in July shows the cast, including David Tennant and Hayley Atwell, line up for mugshots, and it's all very intense.
All 12 episodes will be aired on Netflix on 20th September. We can't wait to binge on this series.
