LONDON, UK (3 August 2023) – Disney+ reveals today the first look images for Character 7’s upcoming UK original series “Culprits” - a thrilling and darkly funny crime series from acclaimed executive producer Stephen Garrett (“The Undoing”, “The Night Manager”) and filmmaker J Blakeson (“I Care A Lot”, “The Disappearance of Alice Creed”). The series will premiere on Disney+ in the UK & Ireland this Autumn.
“Culprits” (8x55’) kicks off where most crime stories end: after a high-stakes heist, when the crew of elite criminals have gone their separate ways and have tried to leave their old lives behind. Past and present collide when a ruthless assassin starts targeting them one by one. Why are they being stalked, who is behind the mayhem, and will they be able to find one another in time to protect themselves and the people they love?
The series stars Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (“Generation”, “Candyman”), Gemma Arterton (“The King’s Man”, “Summerland”), Kirby (“Cruella” “The Good Place”), Niamh Algar (“Deceit”, “Raised by Wolves”), Kamel El Basha (“The Insult”), Tara Abboud, Kevin Vidal (“Strays”, “Working Moms”), Ned Dennehy (“The Peripheral”, “Good Omens”), and Eddie Izzard (“Victoria and Abdul”, “Six Minutes to Midnight”).
“Culprits” is executive produced by Stephen Garrett & J Blakeson, created by J Blakeson, directed by J Blakeson and Claire Oakley (“Make Up”) and produced by Morenike Williams (“Killing Eve”). Culprits is a Character 7 production and is executive produced by Johanna Devereaux for Disney+.
