Dramatic thriller instead of comedy: The new series of the Big Bang Theory star
Suspicion is an English-language remake of Amit Cohen and Maria Feldmancreated Israeli television series False Flag, which was first shown in 2015. In January the final of the 2nd season was shown. At the center of the action are five Israeli citizens who are suddenly considered prime suspects in a media-effective kidnapping case and are thus brutally dragged into the public eye.

It is still unclear what role Big Bang Theory star Kunal Nayyar will play in the series alongside Uma Thurman. Outside of the successful sitcom the actor can hardly show any well-known parts. Together with The Big Bang Theory, Suspicion is his second series.
According to the report, Uma Thurman plays a well-known American businesswoman in Apple’s new edition Suspicion, whose 21-year-old son Leo is kidnapped from a large New York luxury hotel. The video of the kidnapped woman gains great popularity within a short time. Meanwhile, four British citizens find themselves as prime suspects in the spectacular case.
Further roles are to be played by Noah Emmerich (The Americans), Georgina Campbell (Black Mirror), Elyes Gabel (Game of Thrones), Elizabeth Henstridge (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Angel Coulby (Dancing On The Edge). A start date is still pending.
