London – 20th August 2018 – AMC announced today that season two of the original drama “Snatch” will premiere on Tuesday 9th October at 9:00pm, exclusive to BT customers. Starring Rupert Grint (the Harry Potter films) who also serves as an executive producer, the new ten-episode series takes viewers to Spain’s Costa del Sol and follows the Hill Gang on the run in another thrill-a-minute fight to save their fortune, and their lives.
AMC is available free of charge to BT customers as number 332 on BT TV, and to BT Sport Pack subscribers on Sky channel 192. AMC is also available in HD on both BT TV and Satellite with an HD subscription1. The full box set of seasons one and two of “Snatch” will also be available on demand on BT TV.
In the new season, true to form, it’s not long after settling in the fictional coastal town of San Toledo that the Hills run afoul of the local kingpin and find themselves pressed into service for the malevolent crime boss. Just surviving will take every ounce of skill and daring that our heroes have, but outsmarting their enemies and taking over the town for their own is something only the Hills are savvy and crazy enough to pull off.
Grint, known around the world as Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter film franchise, returns as the utterly posh, Charlie Cavendish-Scott, alongside an ensemble cast featuring Luke Pasqualino (“Skins,” “The Borgias”) as Albert Hill, Lucien Laviscount (“Scream Queens,” “Honeytrap”) as Billy Ayres, Phoebe Dynevor (“The Village,” “Dickensian”) as Lotti Mott, Juliet Aubrey (“The Infiltrator,” “Primeval”) as Lily Hill, Tamer Hassan (“House Red”) as Hate ‘Em and Dougray Scott (“Woman in White,” “Enigma”) as Vic Hill. New to this season are Spanish actors Úrsula Corberó (“Money Heist”), Hovik Keuchkerian (“Assassin’s Creed,” “The Night Manager”) and Tristan Ulloa (“Farinia: Snow on the Atlantic”).
The series, loosely based on the popular film of the same name, is executive produced by Alex De Rakoff, (writer/director of Dead Man Running and The Calcium Kid), who also serves as writer and showrunner, Aaron Ginsburg (“The 100”) and William Green (Ali G Indahouse) alongside Grint. New this season are directors Kevin Connolly (“Entourage”), Tom Dey (Failure to Launch, Shanghai Noon) and Luis Prieto (“The Oath,” Kidnap).
