C.B. Strike: A detective drama that hits all the right notes

(all times CLT)

C.B. Strike, based on a book by JK Rowling, has all the makings of your next favorite detective story drama: Set in modern-day UK, veteran soldier Cormoran Strike — the lovechild of a former rockstar and model — is a high society outcast who left the army after a bomb attack in Iraq cost him his leg. He comes back to England to set up a private investigation office in South London and fights his demons as he solves crimes that have baffled the London police. The events begin as his socialite ex-fiancée storms out of his office and Robin Ellacott, his future partner, played by the very talented Holliday Grainger, walks in. Watch the chemistry buzz between them as they battle social pressures to abandon their chosen vocation and solve dangerous crimes across the British isles. You can watch the HBO produced series on OSN +.
