The BBC is hoping to seize viewers with “The Capture,” a new conspiracy thriller set in London from Harry Potter producer David Heyman and NBCUniversal International Studios. The six-parter follows an unjustly arrested man, and poses questions about surveillance and video fakery. The drama is the brainchild of writer-director Ben Chanan.

Shortly after the new trailer for “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” hit the internet, fans noticed a potential spoiler that might have teased a major plot twist.
At one point in the trailer, a figure (could it be Dumbledore?) is facing a wall that bears the Lestrange family tree. We all remember the crazy Bellatrix Lestrange (played by Helena Bonham Carter) from the “Harry Potter” films, don’t we?
When fans zoomed in, many thought they saw Credence Barebone’s name on the right. Credence (played by Ezra Miller) is the troubled young Wizard who was first introduced in “Where to Find Them” in 2016.
According to IGN, he seems to be the son of Corvus Lestrange, which would mean he is the half-brother of Leta Lestrange, played by Zoe Kravitz.
In the first film, we learned that the adopted wizard was being raised by a No-Maj, Mary Lou Barebone, but we didn’t learn anything about his true family heritage.
“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” stars Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
It is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. The film is produced by David Heyman, Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.
Warner Bros. plans to release “The Crimes of Grindelwald” on Nov. 16.

Jude Law’s wizard Dumbledore gets into the action in the first full trailer for this fall’s Harry Potter prequel “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.”
In addition, we see Eddie Redmayne’s magic zoologist Newt Scamander traveling around Paris (and underwater, aboard a magical sea creature) in a quest to stop the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).
At the end of 2016’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America).
But in the new film, the second of a planned five-film series, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead.
The film also stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. The film is produced by David Heyman, Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.
