The Capture bbc

The BBC has revealed a first look photo of its brand new drama thriller The Capture.

The cast and first details about the upcoming series - to air later this year - have also been confirmed.

Holliday Grainger (Strike, Patrick Melrose) and Callum Turner (War & Peace, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald) feature in the above first look picture.

A synopsis of the show reads: "When soldier Shaun Emery’s (Turner) 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 (Grainger) 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?"

Also in the cast are 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), Sophia Brown (Clique, Marcella) and Paul Ritter (Chernobyl, Friday Night Dinner).

The Capture is written and directed by the Bafta award-winning filmmaker Ben Chanan.

The Capture will air across six episodes later this year on BBC One.
