A host of guest stars have signed on for “Criminal,” the stripped-down Netflix procedural set in France, Spain, Germany and the U.K. The action takes place within the confines of a police interview suite. There are three 45-minute episodes set in each country.
Guest stars in the British installments include David Tennant (“Good Omens”), Hayley Atwell (“Agent Carter”), Youssef Kerkour (“Dracula”) and Clare-Hope Ashitey (“Doctor Foster”). George Kay (“Killing Eve”) and Jim Field Smith (“Endeavour”) are the showrunners.
The Idiotlamp-produced series was filmed at Netflix’s new production hub in Madrid. The series bows globally on Netflix in the fall.
In France, the roster of guest stars includes Nathalie Baye and Jérémie Renier, and in Germany Peter Kurth and Christian Berkel. The Spanish episodes will have Carmen Machi and Inma Cuesta guesting.
The episodes are all in the local language, with writing and directing talent from the individual territories taking charge of the episodes from their countries, setting up an innovative production model.
The regular cast in the U.K. includes Katherine Kelly, Lee Ingleby and Nicholas Pinnock. In France, Margot Bancilhon, Laurent Lucas and Stéphane Jobert are among the regulars, and in Germany, regulars include Eva Meckbach, Sylvester Groth, and Florence Kasumba.
The Spanish regulars include Jorge Bosch, José Ángel Egido and Nuria Mencía.
Netflix announced the series late last year and added the casting information in a teaser video released Monday.
