Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Apple TV+ is teasing the new series Criminal Record.

The streaming service shared a trailer for the crime thriller Thursday featuring Peter Capaldi and Cush Jumbo.

Criminal Record is described as "a powerful, character-driven thriller set in the heart of contemporary London." Capaldi and Jumbo play detectives in "a tug of war over a historic murder conviction."

"An anonymous phone call draws two brilliant detectives into a confrontation over an old murder case -- one a young woman in the early stages of her career, the other a well-connected man determined to protect his legacy," an official synopsis reads.

The trailer shows Capaldi and Jumbo's characters face off over the old case.
