Hustle New Series Jan 8th
Sorry if this has been posted already, but I've not been keeping up lately.
I just thought I'd give a heads up to those who've been waiting for it, BBC have released a date for the new series.
From BBC Press Office
Thursday 8 January
9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE
Mickey Bricks returns in this new series of the popular drama about a team of con artists. Following his stint in Australia, selling the Sydney Opera House to an unsuspecting punter, Mickey has returned to a "new" London. The credit crunch has hit Britain and, while the nation tightens its belt, there are still a scurrilous and greedy few who are getting ever richer. Mickey is keen to put new plans into action to extract their cash.
However, it's not just the financial state of the nation that has changed; Mickey's crew is looking somewhat depleted too. Local know-all Cyclops reveals that Ash is back to short cons, while Danny and Stacey are "grifting" their way across America. And the law has finally caught up with Mickey's old friend and mentor, Albert, currently detained at Her Majesty's pleasure.
Far from being desperate to get out of prison, Albert is living the high life. The art of the long con is in his blood and, naturally, he already has a "mark" lined up for Mickey.
And their call for war on poverty is a smokescreen we don't need, cos the only war worth fighting for is a war on their pure greed. : Acid Country - Paul Heaton
