1. What is ‘United U.K.’ about?
Created by George Kay (Killing Eve) and Jim Field Smith (The Wrong Mans), Criminal U.K is part of Netflix's Criminal franchise—a unique take on the police procedural that spans four European countries—the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Germany. Each country follows a series of suspects as a team of investigators try to get answers about the crime to which they are possibly connected. And did we mention the whole show is shot in just two rooms?
The official synopsis for the United Kindom edition reads, “Within the walls of an interrogation room, London investigators question suspects accused of grievous crimes until the truth comes to light.”
The four-episode second season follows detectives as they interview a variety of citizens, including a woman who is being treated as a supporting witness in a murder case, a man accused of rape, an online vigilante who outed a potential pedophile and an already-convicted criminal who is looking to strike a deal in exchange for information about an unsolved missing child case.
2. Who’s in it?
The show features Sophie Okonedo, Kit Harington, Sharon Horgan and Kunal Nayyar as the suspects.
