D.I. Ray

New police drama explores both the obvious and hidden biases encountered by a policewoman newly promoted to homicide detective.

SUNDAY at 9:00PM

When D.I. Rachita Ray, a British-Asian policewoman new to homicide is assigned to investigate the suspected honor killing of a young Muslim man, she quickly realizes the suspects can’t be guilty. The evidence against the two brothers from a British Hindu family is flimsy at best. Her attempts at conveying this to her superiors and her colleagues fall on deaf ears, hidden biases, and a keenness to wrap the case up. That is until her probing leads the team to a much more sinister crime.

In this four-part drama, D.I. Ray goes on a journey that sees her uncover a complex web of deceit within organized crime, while laying bare the wounds deep within herself that she’s spent a lifetime ignoring. Wounds that are born from a desperate desire to fit in, despite not looking the part.

Created and written by Maya Sondhi (Line of Duty), the series stars Parminder Nagra (Bend it Like Beckham, ER, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) in the title role. Nagra's co-stars include Gemma Whelan (Killing Eve) and Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica) as her superiors.
