January on Apple TV+ – Apple TV+ highlights for the month of January include Criminal Record and Masters of the Air.
Wednesday 10 January
“Criminal Record” is an eight-episode Apple Original crime thriller starring Academy Award and BAFTA winner Peter Capaldi (“Doctor Who,” “The Thick of It”), and Laurence Olivier Award and Critics Choice Award nominee Cush Jumbo (“The Good Wife,” “The Good Fight,” “The Beast Must Die”) as detectives in a tug of war over a high-profile murder case.
From BAFTA Award nominee Paul Rutman (“Vera,” “Indian Summers”), “Criminal Record” is a powerful, character-driven drama set in the heart of contemporary London. 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.
The series touches on issues of race, institutional failure and the quest to find common ground in a polarised Britain.
Masters of the Air
Friday 26 January
“Masters of the Air” is an action-packed drama that follows the true story of an American bomber group in World War II, hailing from executive producers Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, and written by John Orloff.
Based on Donald L. Miller’s book of the same name, and scripted by Orloff, the series follows the men of the 100th Bomb Group (the “Bloody Hundredth”) as they conduct perilous bombing raids over Nazi Germany and grapple with the frigid conditions, lack of oxygen and sheer terror of combat conducted at 25,000 feet in the air.
Portraying the psychological and emotional price paid by these young men as they helped destroy the horror of Hitler’s Third Reich, is at the heart of “Masters of the Air.”
The series stars a stellar cast led by Academy Award-nominee Austin Butler, Callum Turner, Anthony Boyle, Nate Mann, Rafferty Law, Academy Award-nominee Barry Keoghan, Josiah Cross, Branden Cook and Ncuti Gatwa.
