Giri/Haji will premiere on BBC Two on Thursday October 17th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Giri/Haji explores the butterfly effect of one murder over two cities. Kenzo, a Tokyo detective and family man, is abruptly dispatched to London by his superiors in the police department to search for his missing younger brother Yuto, the honour of his family at stake. Arriving, he becomes drawn into the shadowy world of Abbott and Vickers, a once lucrative business partnership now under threat, as the former looks now to the East to expand his empire.
Distant from everything familiar to him, Kenzo unexpectedly finds hope in a remarkable makeshift family of Londoners, each in turn confronting the tumultuous, spiralling effects of fateful past decisions. The drama series, which was created by Joe Barton, is produced by Sister Pictures and stars Takehiro Hira, Kelly Macdonald, Yosuke Kubozuka, Will Sharpe, Masahiro Motoki, Justin Long, Charlie Creed-Miles, Yuko Nakamura, Aoi Okuyama, Mitsuko Oka, Togo Igawa, Kazuyuki, Yoshiki Minato and Tony Pitts.
