'The Capture': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to about the crime thriller on NBC Universal's Peacock

It's the battle of the streaming platforms. NBC Universal's streaming service Peacock will roll out on July 15 and treat us to more shows and intriguing films. One among the long list is the technological thriller 'The Capture', which will release in the US.

The story follows DI Rachel Carey, a counterterrorism officer, who has to investigate the case of a UK Special Forces officer named Shaun Emery, played by Callum Turner. Emery has just recently been acquitted of murder on his tour in Afghanistan and has proved his innocence once more, after irrefutable CCTV footage from a night out makes it to the public. However, there's more than what meets the eye and there's a long and dangerous trail of deception to unravel.


Here's all you need to know about the series. 

Release date

'The Capture' begins streaming on Peacock, on July 15.


The official synopsis of the show reads, "When soldier Shaun Emery’s (Turner) conviction for a murder in Afghanistan is overturned due to flawed video evidence, he returns to life as a free man with his young daughter. But when damning CCTV footage from a night out in London comes to light, Shaun’s life takes a shocking turn and he must soon fight for his freedom once again. With DI Rachel Carey (Grainger) drafted in to investigate Shaun’s case, she quickly learns that the truth can sometimes be a matter of perspective. Should she trust Shaun Emery?"


'The Capture' is all about one reportedly committed crime and then another until it looks at a third entity that actually connects these two crimes. Callum Turner's Shaun Emery is a war veteran with a career of serving as a lance corporal in the British armed forces. He is acquitted of the murder of a war prisoner. He is caught on camera where he assaults his lawyer, Hannah Roberts (Laura Haddock).
