It looks like Netflix may have a serious contender in the limited series categories at the Emmys this year with Collateral. The four-episode series takes place in London over the course of four days after the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man. Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan plays Kip Glaspie, a detective inspector who refuses to accept this killing as a simple random murder and seeks out the darker truth hidden in the shadows.
Mulligan received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress for her breakthrough performance in 2009’s An Education. She is best known for her roles in Baz Lurhmann’s The Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive with Ryan Gosling and, most recently, Dee Rees’ Academy Award-nominated Netflix original Mudbound. She also gives riveting performances in indie gems Inside Llewyn Davis with Oscar Isaac and Shame opposite an incredible Michael Fassbender.
Collateral features a mostly British cast, including Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Penny Dreadful), Nicola Walker (MI-5) and John Simm. All four episodes will be available to stream on Netflix on March 9. Check out the limited series’ trailer above and poster below.
