AMC Global/BT TV Pick Up ‘Snatch’ TV Series. UK Premiere Date In October.
AMC Global has landed the UK rights to Crackle’s ‘Snatch‘ TV Series it has been announced today.
‘Snatch’ was inspired by a real life heist in London and is based loosely on the wildly popular Guy Ritchie movie of the same name. The drama centres on a group of twenty-something, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high stakes world of organised crime. They must quickly learn to navigate the treacherous waters of London’s underworld as rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend.
The show stars Rupert Grint (the ‘Harry Potter’ films) as the intelligent but chaotic Charlie Cavendish, Luke Pasqualino (‘Skins’, ‘The Musketeers’) as the smart, aspirational Albert Hill, Dougray Scott (‘Desperate Housewives’, ‘My Week with Marilyn’) as Vic Hill and Juliet Aubrey (‘Iris’, ‘The White Queen’) as Lilly Hill, Albert’s criminal parents. Lucien Laviscount (‘Scream Queens’, ‘The Bye Bye Man’) also stars as Billy Ayres, a wingman to Albert who is rough around the edges. Additionally, Marc Warren (‘The Good Wife’, ‘Doctor Who’) stars as crooked cop Bob Fink and Stephanie Leonidas (‘Whitechapel’, ‘Mirromask’) is the assertive Chloe Kohn, femme fatale in waiting.
The 10-episode series was created and executive produced by Alex De Rakoff (writer/director of ‘Dead Man Running’ and ‘The Calcium Kid’).
