The Hustle team

If you're rich, greedy and a taker then beware… the Hustle team are back

Starts on BBC ONE, Tuesday 29 March at 9.00pm


"The most surprising and purely enjoyable new British drama series in years." The Times

"Hustle could prove to be one of those tempting, enriching propositions presented by a bunch of irresistible rogues, and impossible to turn down." Daily Mail

"Style-wise, it's on nodding terms with just about every con man caper movie." Daily Star

Adrian Lester, Marc Warren, Robert Glenister, Jaime Murray and Robert Vaughn reunite on BBC ONE at the end of March as Mickey, Danny, Ash, Stacie and Albert - the group of expert con artists who spin lines that convince even the greediest of fat cats to part with their cash.

The team return from a well-earned break in sunnier climes and are already setting up scams that target the unethical and malevolent members of society who have no qualms in using and abusing anyone who crosses their path.

New marks on the target list include a ruthless and Machiavellian young property developer, a one-time gangster turned celebrity chef who hides a dark secret and a less than honest detective who wants a share of the gang's riches.

Mickey and Danny have resolved their power struggles and the young rookie is keen to prove he can be every bit as successful as his mentor, much to the amusement of the others.

Albert is still dispensing his knowledge and advice and roping in the nastiest of marks, Ash remains as dry and resourceful as ever and Stacie continues to manage the team's finances, whilst still managing to attract the eye of many an unsuspecting man.

Packed with action, humour and slick moves, the six new hour-long episodes of Hustle are penned by its creator Tony Jordan with additional credits for Matthew Graham (Hustle series 1, Spooks), Howard Overman (New Tricks) and Julie Rutterford (Teachers).

Jane Featherstone, executive producer for Kudos, says: "The Hustle gang return with more audacious, inventive and irresistible cons than ever, and we'll have another chance to enjoy the sizzling chemistry between the group which makes the series so distinctive and so much fun."

Hustle is produced by Karen Wilson and executive produced by Jane Featherstone, Simon Crawford Collins for Kudos and Gareth Neame for the BBC.
