Robbie Coltrane’s Critical Evidence (8×60′) will see Coltrane (Cracker, Harry Potter) explore forensic science and the methods used to solve murder cases.

It will be produced by Banijay Group-owned UK prodco IWC Media and was commissioned by Koulla Anastasi, programme director at Crime + Investigation UK. It has already started production and is due to begin airing in the UK later this year.

Coltrane is the son of a police surgeon and starred as criminal psychologist Dr Edward ‘Fitz’ Fitzgerald in Granada Television’s celebrated drama Cracker between 1993 and 2006.

“As the presence and footprint of Crime + Investigation grows around the world, we are seeking more opportunities for original multi-region commissions expressly for our CI channels,” said Laura Fleury, A+E Networks’ senior VP/head of programming, international and LMN.
