Peter Capaldi and Cush Jumbo for Apple TV+

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

An anonymous phone call draws two brilliant detectives into a confrontation over an old murder case – one a young woman in the early stages of her career, the other a well-connected man determined to protect his legacy.

The series touches on issues of race, institutional failure, and the quest to find common ground in a polarized Britain.

Starring Capaldi as Detective Chief Inspector Daniel Hegarty and Jumbo as Detective Sergeant June Lenker, the cast of Criminal Record also features Charlie Creed-Miles (King Arthur, Wild Bill), Dionne Brown (Queenie), Shaun Dooley (Official Secret, The Woman in Black, The Awakening), and Stephen Campbell-Moore (The Bank Job, Masters of the Air).

Also starring are Zoë Wanamaker (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, My Week with Marilyn), Rasaq Kukoyi (Andor, His House), Maisie Ayres, Aysha Kala (The Undeclared War), BAFTA TV Award winner Cathy Tyson (Help), and Tom Moutchi (Famalam, The Hustle).

Cush Jumbo for Apple TV+

Over in the world of Discovery+, the streaming service is getting its first price increase since launching in the U.S. in January 2021.

Beginning immediately, the ad-free plan will rise to $8.99 per month, a rise of $2.

The ad tier is also increasing by $1 to $5.99.

Several other streaming services have been introducing price increases of late, so it was only a matter of time before Discovery+ followed suit.

Over on Netflix, the full-length trailer for Neon has launched.

"The eight-episode comedy captures not only the three besties' larger-than-life dreams, but also the harsh realities and funny mishaps of surviving the music industry."

Santi Sings

The series stars Tyler Dean Flores as Santi, a rising reggaeton artist who, with the help of his friends Ness (Emma Ferreira), Felix (Jordan Mendoza), and A&R rep Mia (Courtney Taylor), hopes to become the biggest star in reggaeton.
