Leverage Vs Hustle: May The Best Scam Win
TV.com Staff
staff

America's answer to Hustle is here, and it's so similar you'd be forgiven for thinking it's a con. Hit US scam show Leverage is not officially a Hustle spin-off, but its resemblance is remarkable: Just like the British show it follows a team of diverse fraudsters as they form elaborate plans to con greedy millionaires...

AMC renews Hustle for fourth season

AMC's Hustle, a coproduction of the cable network and the BBC, is going into production on its fourth season.

The cast and crew are in production in London and will cross the pond in November and December to shoot two episodes in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Season four, which consists of six episodes, is set to premiere in March.

The hour-long 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." For the upcoming season, Ashley Walters joins the cast, which includes Robert Vaughn, Adrian Lester, Jaime Murray, Marc Warren, and Robert Glenister.

As Hustle's fifth series come to a close, the BBC has picked it up for a sixth.

BBC orders more Hustle

Hustle, one of the most successful of the BBC's current crop of dramas, will return with its sixth series next year following another successful year.

The show, which follows a gang of expert con-artists as they swindle their way across London, has attracted five-and-a-half million viewers throughout the current series--making it one of the most popular dramas on the BBC.

Series five, which concludes tonight, has seen two new members join the team and the return of the gang's old grifting boss Mickey Stone.

"We are really pleased with the way that series five has been received and having a fabulous actor like Adrian Lester back in the fold has really helped," said Hustle's creator Tony Jordan. "I've already got some great ideas for series six, so I can't wait to get cracking on the scripts."

Merlin conjures up a second series

Merlin was renewed for a second series today, and is set to welcome guest-appearances from a host of British talent. The BBC has announced that The Office actor Mackenzie Crook and Hustle's Adrian Lester are just two of the names involved.

Crook, who recently played a gangster in Skins' third series, guest stars in the opening episode as a creepy character called Cedric. Lester, meanwhile, will appear later in the series as a devious man named Myror.

Also appearing alongside the original cast will be Mistresses actress Sarah Parish, who plays a troll masquerading as a beautiful woman, and Gosford Park's Charles Dance, who joins the cast as a sinister witch-finder.

Merlin attracted more than 6.3 million viewers throughout its first series on BBC One and has since been picked up by international broadcasters.

The show's new 13-part series, in which the young sorcerer continues to ...

The big news this week is the release of two fan faves: the shiver-inducing first season of Supernatural and the long-awaited second season of Lost. But we also have a little British flavor in the mix this week with two collections of the classic sci-fi series Doctor Who and the off-beat humor of Red Dwarf. The hits keep coming with the inaugural season's part two of Commander In Chief, season six of Oz, and The Abbott and Costello Show: 100th Anniversary Collection, while our younger users will appreciate the release of season two of Fraggle Rock, Goosebumps and the complete sixth season of The Flintstones.

Hustle's Finale Puts Albert in the Spotlight

TV grifters don’t come more reliable than Albert Stroller. He’s contributed to every con since Hustle debuted in 2004, and remains seemingly unabashed that he’s typecast into all the boring, old man roles. For the most part this season Albert’s been overlooked by his perky, pro-active counterparts--you’d be forgiven for thinking dowdy barman Eddie had taken his place--but this Friday’s finale (9pm, BBC1) cements his place in the group.

Albert (Robert Vaughn) is finally given some decent screen time this Friday, in an episode almost entirely dedicated to him. While most of the team are distracted by a ridiculous plot, about stolen diamonds and the mafia, Albert takes personal leave to contemplate some life-changing news, given to him from an old acquaintance (played by Hannah Gordon).

Strangely it seems as if us viewers are the only ones who remember how, a fortnight ago, the ...
