M-Net (channel 101) is scheduled to air the series What Happens In Helmand. The first episode titled The Capture will air on January 7, 2021, at 22h30.

When a British soldier is charged with a crime, the tenacious young detective handling his case begins to uncover a multi-layered conspiracy.

After being acquitted of a war crime in Afghanistan, former United Kingdom Special Forces Lance Corporal Shaun Emery finds himself accused of the kidnapping and murder of his barrister Hannah Roberts, backed by damning CCTV evidence. Whilst Emery works to clear his name, fast-tracked Detective Inspector Rachel Carey of Homicide and Serious Crime Command begins to uncover a complex conspiracy surrounding Emery, calling into question the validity of the footage.

This is a riveting British crime mini-series directed and written by Ben Chanan and stars Callum Turner as Lance Corporal Shaun Emery with Holliday Grainger as DI Rachel Carey.
