Production on the Disney+ original UK series Culprits is underway in Canada with filming also set to take place in the UK and Spain.  

Gemma Arterton, Niamh Algar and Tara Abboud have recently joined the cast of the Disney+ UK original.

Further cast announcements include Eddie Izzard, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Kamel El Basha, Kevin Vidal and Ned Dennehy. They join the previously announced lead, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, most recently seen in Nia DaCosta’s Candyman.

The eight-part dark comedy follows the aftermath of a heist, as the crew find themselves individually targeted by a killer. The directors for the series are J Blakeson and Claire Oakley, and it is being produced by Stephen Garrett’s London-based outfit Character 7. 

Commissioned under Disney’s adult-focused Star brand, Culprits was one of the first UK original series to be announced by Disney+. The streaming platform plans to originate 60 local productions by 2024.
