Season Co-produced by AMC and filmed in U.S. for First Time
AMC will premiere its original six-part, hour-long series HUSTLE on Wednesday, April 18at 10pm ET/9c. The series follows the exploits of a crew of London-based con artists who pull off daringly intricate stings to swindle money from greedy, morally corrupt “marks.” Set against the glamorous fast pace of London, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, the series offers plenty of action, suspense, style and humor, and an occasional touch of romance. Surreal camerawork and cinematic photography provide an inescapable comparison to highly stylized big screen movies such as Catch Me If You Can, The Italian Job and Ocean’s Eleven. As the series progresses, the viewer delves deeper into the hidden world of scammers to reveal the personalities and perverse artistry of the high-end confidence game.
Coproduced with AMC, the series is made by Kudos Film and Television, one of the UK’s leading drama companies, for the BBC. HUSTLE is produced by Jolyon Symonds, inspired by an idea from Bharat Nalluri (“Tsunami: The Aftermath”), and written and created by Tony Jordan (Chief Storyline Consultant, “EastEnders”). Executive producers are Simon Crawford Collins (“MI-5”) and Karen Wilson, both of Kudos.
