Discover DI Ray, a refreshing and necessary addition to the detective drama genre,
that sees the talented and acclaimed Parminder Nagra (13 Reasons Why, ER, Bend It Like Beckham), give an impressive, powerful performance as the titular lead. Created and written by Line of Duty star, and one-to-watch scribe Maya Sondhi (Ackley Bridge, EastEnders) with Jed Mercurio as Exec Producer, this riveting and groundbreaking is released on DVD and digital on 11 July courtesy of Acorn Media International, following its recent transmission on ITV.
After a heroic arrest brings her to the attention of the decision makers on the force, DI Rachita Ray (Nagra) a British Asian policewoman is promoted to homicide… But her initial excitement on the promotion is quickly quashed by the underlying feeling that she landed the role as a box-ticking exercise, rather than on her merit as a detective.
Assigned to investigate a suspected honour killing of a young Muslim man, she quickly realises the two suspects – brothers from a British Hindu family – aren’t guilty. The evidence against them is flimsy at best, but her attempts to convey this to her superiors and colleagues falls on deaf ears.
This Birmingham set crime-drama, features a stellar cast including Gemma Whelan (White House Farm, Gentleman Jack, Game of Thrones) and Jamie Bamber (Marcella, The Smoke, Law & Order UK) and is a must see crime-drama.
