The announcement by the free, ad-supported Internet TV network was made at a presentation in New York, with this being the only new original programming announcement from Crackle, and that Snatch series will operate in the same vein as FX’s Fargo, carrying the spirit of the setting in the original feature film while creating a new world. Crackle have yet to reveal a release date for the series.
The premise for the Snatch series is as follows:
The Snatch series, inspired by a real-life gold bullion heist in London, will center 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 organised crime. The hoods must quickly learn to navigate London’s underworld in encounters with rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend.
I wonder just how much of the 2000 film they’ll try to use in this Snatch series. Will it be like Fargo and just use the same location but different set of characters? or use some that have existed in the film version and retell the story on the small screen? Any interest I have for the series however will come down to who they cast.
