Irvine Welsh’s ‘Crime’ – get your first look at the BritBox series starring Dougray Scott

The trailer has arrived for Irvine Welsh’s ‘Crime’, which will be coming to BritBox on 18th November 2021.

The six-part series will be available as a box set exclusively to stream on BritBox.

A police department fights with itself. A hero is lost; tortured by his own demons and all the while, watching, waiting, a brutal killer is poised to strike.

‘Crime’ is set in Edinburgh and directed by James Strong (‘Broadchurch’, ‘Vigil’) and David Blair (‘Isolation Stories’, ‘The Barking Murders’). It is being produced by for Buccaneer Media and Off Grid Film and TV.
