9:30pm – Saturday, June 2 on ABC1
The popular series, Hustle returns for a sixth series and the gang are back, with more exciting, inventive and sophisticated (if a little bit shady) scams. If you have money to burn…you had better keep an eye on it.
When Mickey (Adrian Lester) meets a beautiful, clever young woman, it all seems to be too good to be true.. and it is. Lucy Britford is an, albeit highly attractive, Detective Inspector, set on getting somewhere in life – the only trouble is that achieving her ambitions rather unfortunately involves catching Mickey and making him answer to all of his past misdemeanours – meaning a long- lasting relationship is quite out of the question. Much to Emma’s (Kelly Adams) relief.
Meanwhile Sean (Matt Di Angelo) and Emma must face up to some long past, but not forgotten, family history, and contemplate the best way to get the perfect revenge – the question is – is it about the money? Factor in Ash’s (Robert Glenister) reunion with ‘Liability Finch’ and the disturbing disappearance of lady luck from their most valuable asset – Mickey and the team have more than enough to keep them, and everyone else, guessing.
In episode one, the series kicks off just as the team are finishing with one genius con where Emma is posing as pop princess Kylie and Albert is out finding and priming the next unsuspecting mark – ex-banker Piggy Richarson who has been hounded by the press after a very public pension scandal. However just as everything starts to fall into place a mysterious woman enquires about Mickey’s whereabouts and throws their plan into disarray.
