Season 1

Thief is an American crime drama television mini-series created by Norman Morrill following Nick Atwater, the leader of a robbery crew balancing his personal life with the planning of a major heist. The crew is being targeted by a relentless cop and the Chinese mafia every step of the way, while Atwater struggles at home with his teenage stepdaughter.

The series aired in the USA on FX from 28 March to 2 May, 2006. There are six hour-long episodes in the series.

Thief originally aired in South Africa on M-Net from 31 January to 7 March, 2007, on Wednesdays at 20h00. It later aired on e.tv and on DStv's Mzansi Magic channel. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Thief premiered on Mzansi Magic on Tuesday 3 July 2012, at 21h00. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

Thief focuses on a crew of thieves led by Nick Atwater (Andre Braugher) who find themselves in profound danger and at a moral crossroads.

It also follows the unlikely father-daughter relationship between Atwater and his 14-year-old stepdaughter (Mae Whitman), who forces him to confront the lies which have defined his carefully ordered world.

While the crew tries to pull off the most dangerous heist of their career - stealing $40-million from the U.S. government earmarked for the war on drugs in South America - their lives are complicated by the guilt they feel at the murder of one of their own, a crooked cop looking to clean up his own image with a big takedown, and a terminally ill killer sent by the Chinese Mafia looking to settle a score of their own.

At the 58th Primetime Emmy Awards in August 2006, Andre Braugher received an Emmy award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie for his portrayal of Nick Atwater. It was the only Emmy the FX Network received.
