Check out a new trailer for Crackle's latest original series that's based on Guy Ritchie's cult crime caper movie "Snatch."
The ten-episode hyper-stylized crime drama, which was developed into a scripted show by English filmmaker Alex De Rakoff (The Calcium Kid), takes viewers on a ride through London's criminal underworld of high-stakes heists and fixed boxing matches.
Harry Potter's Rupert Grint, The Musketeers' Luke Pasqualino, and Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick lead the cast as a couple of British crooks embarking on their own underhanded efforts to earn some quick cash -- or in this case, steal a fortune in gold bars.
Directors Nicholas Renton (BBC's The Musketeers), Lawrence Gough (Doctor Who) and Geoffrey Sax (White Noise, Frankie & Alice) are each helming several episodes of the streaming series, which also stars Dougray Scott (Fear the Walking Dead), Lucien Laviscourt (The Bye Bye Man), Marc Warren (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell ), Stephanie Leonidas (Defiance), Phoebe Dynevor (Waterloo Road), Juliet Aubrey (The White Queen), and Tamer Hassan (Layer Cake).
"Snatch: Season 1" will stream for free on the Crackle app or website, beginning Thursday, March 16th.
"Snatch," inspired by a real life heist in London, is a 10-episode, one hour Crackle original, based loosely on the wildly popular movie of the same name, that centers on a group of twenty-something, up and coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime. They must quickly learn to navigate the treacherous waters of London's underworld as rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend.
