Season 2

Hustle is a British comedy-drama television series created by Tony Jordan which follows the exploits of a group of British con-artists who specialise in pulling off elaborate operations to dupe their victims.

The series aired in the UK on BBC One from 24 February, 2004 to 17 February, 2012. There are 48 hour-long episodes in eight seasons.

Hustle premiered in South Africa on SABC3 on 13 March 2006, at 21h00. The first three seasons aired on the channel before it lost the rights to the series. The series later aired on DStv's BBC Entertainment (formerly BBC Prime) channel. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times by channel.

Synopsis

Hustle follows the exploits of a group of British con-artists who specialise in pulling off elaborate operations to dupe their victims.

They choose their targets carefully, always adhering to the first rule of the con: "You can't con an honest man." Each week they pull off a complicated scam with several twists.

Sometimes the cons end up in failure, while the episode concentrates on the characters coming to terms with the results of their actions.

Mickey is the group's leader, who comes up with the plans. Albert is a veteran con man who in his later years is a "roper," searching out suitable victims and introducing them to his cohorts.

Ash comes up with all the locations and equipment needed for the cons. Stacie steps in whenever she needs to use her feminine wiles.

The group is rounded off by Danny, a young amateur grifter who Mickey takes under his wing.

Hustle often features cutaway scenes displayed in a separate style from the main part of the show. The episodes often dwell on the psychological aspects of human behaviour and the art of deception based on this knowledge.
