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