Tense Emotional Drama Follows the Disappearance of a Young Boy
 
          The critically acclaimed British crime drama THE GUILTY, a three-part series, will air in the U.S. on PBS Sunday, October 25, 2015, 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET. The show’s premiere follows the fifth episode of the lavish MASTERPIECE drama “Indian Summers,” rounding out PBS’ Sunday night drama block.
 
          Written by Debbie O’Malley (“Law & Order: UK,” “Silk”), THE GUILTY follows DCI Maggie Brand (Tasmin Greig) as she and fellow police detectives reopen the investigation of a four-year-old boy’s disappearance during a neighborhood cookout. Driven by her obsession to discover what happened to Callum Reid, Maggie stops at nothing to discover the truth. In the process, she puts her own family at risk.
