Six part British crime drama Crime, based on the novel by Irvin Welsh and a Britbox original, will premiere on Britbox Australia this November.

Moira Hogan, Country Manager of BritBox Australia says: “Shot in Glasgow and Edinburgh, Crime is a gritty and compelling 6 episode series, full of shocking twists and turns and we’re thrilled to bring it to BritBox. Irvine Welsh is a world-renowned and well respected writer whose novels have been translated into some of the most visually striking movies and along with a world-class cast and production team, we are excited to round out 2021 with this exclusive new series.”

Crime is the story of Ray Lennox in a city on the edge of the abyss. Lennox is a man whose clear sight is not always a blessing. A girl goes missing. A town is in fear. 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.

Dougray Scott stars as Lennox and the cast also features Joanna Vanderham (Warrior, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) as DS Angela Drummond, Angela Grin (Harlots) as Trudi Lowe, Ken Stott (The Dig, Fortitude, Devils) as Chief Superintendent Bob Toal and Jamie Sives (Guilt, Too Close) as Detective Inspector Dougie Gillman.

Crime is being produced by David Blair for Buccaneer Media and Off Grid Film and TV. Irvine Welsh is adapting his novel for the screen alongside long-standing screenwriting partner Dean Cavanagh (Creation Stories). Executive producers are Irvine Welsh, Dean Cavanagh, Dougray Scott, Tony Wood, Richard Tulk-Hart, Pamela Hansson and James Strong.
