Is there a 'Suspicion' trailer? 

Apple TV Plus has released the first trailer for Suspicion. In it we see the group of Brits band together to try and unravel how they came to be the suspects in this kidnapping, while Katherine Newman struggles to balance her tough business woman persona with that of a worried mother. But is everyone who they say they are? Watch the trailer below: 

'Suspicion' plot

In Suspicion, businesswoman Katherine Newman is horrified when her son is kidnapped from a New York hotel (seemingly by criminals wearing the masks of the British Queen and Prince Charles, see below). As the National Crime Agency and the FBI investigate, suspicion quickly falls upon four seemingly ordinary British citizens who were staying in the hotel on the night in question. 

Very quickly the foursome find themselves playing a high-stakes, trans-Atlantic game of cat and mouse as they attempt to evade the authorities in order to prove their innocence. However it’s clear that not all of them can be trusted and while some were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, there’s someone amongst them who clearly knows the truth about the mysterious abduction.
