UPDATED! New images (28 in total!) are available on our Facebook and, also, Criminal will launch on Netflix on 20 September! 

It sounds like Netflix are continuing to reinvent television as we know it, especially after the likes of Black Mirror‘s Bandersnatch. and generally their impact on television streaming and indie film-making, with this new series. Criminal will compromise of 12 unique stories set in 4 different countries: France, Spain, Germany and the UK.

It takes place exclusively within the confines of a police interview suite. This stripped down, cat-and-mouse drama focuses on the intense mental conflict between detectives and suspects… and I absolutely LOVE the sound of it! Even more excitingly, and interestingly, the episodes are in local language, written and directed by talent from their respective countries.

Here’s a further breakdown of who to expect from each country, this is highly appealing…
