BBC One Sets September Premiere Date For ‘The Capture’ Starring Callum Turner & Holliday Grainger
BBC One has set a September premiere date for surveillance thriller ‘The Capture‘ starring Callum Turner, Holliday Grainger, Ron Perlman and Famke Janssen.
When soldier Shaun Emery’s (Callum Turner – ‘Fantastic Beasts’, ‘War & Peace’) conviction for a murder in Afghanistan is overturned due to flawed video evidence, he returns to life as a free man with his young daughter.
But when damning CCTV footage from a night out in London comes to light, Shaun’s life takes a shocking turn and he must soon fight for his freedom once again. With DI Rachel Carey (Holliday Grainger – ‘Strike’, ‘The Borgias’) drafted in to investigate Shaun’s case, she quickly learns that the truth can sometimes be a matter of perspective. Should she trust Shaun Emery?
The Capture is an acutely timed thriller that looks at a troubling world of fake news and the extraordinary capabilities of the intelligence services. In this ‘post-truth era’, can we really believe what we see?
The six-part thriller is made for BBC One by Heyday Television and NBCUniversal International Studios, and also stars Ron Perlman (‘Hellboy’, ‘Hand Of God’), Famke Janssen (‘X Men’, ‘Taken’), Ben Miles (‘The Crown’, ‘Coupling’), Laura Haddock (‘Transformers: The Last Knight’, ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’), Lia Williams (‘The Crown’, ‘Kiri’), Ginny Holder (‘MotherFatherSon’, ‘Death In Paradise’), Ralph Ineson (‘Harry Potter’, ‘Game of Thrones’), Sophia Brown (‘Clique’, ‘Marcella’), Paul Ritter (‘Chernobyl’, ‘Friday Night Dinner’).
‘The Capture’ is written and directed by the Bafta award-winning filmmaker Ben Chanan (‘The Missing’, ‘Cyberbully’). Executive Producers are David Heyman, Rosie Alison and Tom Winchester for Heyday Television, Tom Coan for NBCUniversal International Studios, Ben Irving for BBC One and Ben Chanan.
