Plot Synopsis

When soldier Shaun Emery's conviction for murder is overturned because of 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, his life takes a shocking turn -- and he must fight for his freedom once again. With newly promoted DI Rachel Carey is 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? Season 1 of THE CAPTURE is a six-part thriller that looks at a troubling world of fake news and the extraordinary capabilities of the intelligence services. In this "post-truth era," can we really believe what we see? THE CAPTURE had its U.S. premiere on Wednesday, June 15, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Peacock released the entire six-episode first season. THE CAPTURE was renewed for a second season in June 2020.
