The new series features Capaldi and Jumbo as detectives looking into long forgotten historic murder conviction after an anonymous call throws everything about the case into chaos. 

Criminal Record is already filming in London. The series comes from BAFTA nominee Paul Rutman, with STV Studios and Tod Productions producing. Elaine Collins, plus Rutman, Capaldi, and Jumbo, are serving as executive producers. 

Tyson won the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress this year for her performance as nurse Polly in Britain's Channel 4's Help. The drama also starred Jodie Comer of Killing Eve fame and Stephen Graham (Band of Brothers)."

Apple first announced Criminal Record in June. However, there has been no reported release date at the time of this writing. 

It's been very active in recent weeks on the Apple TV+ front. The streaming service recently began airing the final season of See, which stars Jason Momoa. Then, earlier in the month, the heavy-anticipated Five Days at Memorial started airing. 

This year, Apple TV+ received 52 Emmy Award nominations, including 20 for last year's Best Comedy winner, Ted Lasso. The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards are being held on Sunday, September 12, and will air on NBC and Peacock, beginning at 8 p.m. EDT. 

Apple TV+ is available on all of Apple's best iPhones, iPads, Macs, and the Apple TV 4K (2021).
