I just found this new show that is premiering next Saturday night (1/14) at 10PM Eastern/9PM Central. The cast and premise look promising and I will definitely be checking this one out. The cast includes Robert Vaughan, Adrian Lester, Marc Warren, Robert Glenister, and Jaime Murray.
MEET THE PROS OF CON ON AMC'S NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, HUSTLE
Saturdays 10pm | 9c
Encores Fridays 7pm | 6c
Hustle follows the exploits of a group of London-based con artists who pull off daringly intricate stings to swindle money from "respectable" but despicably greedy marks. With plenty of suspense, style and humor, an occasional touch of romance, and always a series of unforeseen twists, each episode takes the viewer deeper into the hidden world of scammers and grifters to reveal the personalities and perverse artistry of the high-end confidence game.
The family that cons together - stays together
From Mickey, the group's smooth-talking "manager," to Stacey, the beautiful and brainy "lure," to Albert, the veteran "roper," as well as Ash the jack-of-all-trades "fixer," and Danny, the fiercely talented but unpredictable "wild card," the show's five master con artists ply their trade of deception across London. And whether they're selling a shady art dealer a bogus masterpiece or duping a violent casino boss into investing in a film that doesn't exist, these hustlers always find a means to their end. Together, this not-so-traditional family of grifters - the "bad" guys you simply can't help but love - are out for the score of the century.
The con is on AMC
Slick, action-packed and full of humor and intrigue, Hustle evokes the wit and charm of Ocean's Eleven as well as the cinematic sleight-of-hand of Snatch. The perfect pop culture complement to AMC's commitment to great stories and style, the show gives a fresh modern twist to the great con and heist films of the past. During each episode, you'll delve into a world in which no one is what he or she seems - from bank managers to bellhops, cocktail waitress to CEO's - and everyone is working an angle.
