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.
Season 3 premiered on BBC Entertainment on Tuesday 10 March 2009, at 20h30. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are six episodes in the third season.
The third season of Hustle finds the long-con experts strapped for cash after a spell in Las Vegas, and confronted by some risky situations.
Mickey poses as a hip-hop record producer when the gang pit themselves against a notorious mark with a bratty son who thinks he's the next Eminem. But when the con goes wrong, will the gang end up paying the price?
When James Whittaker Wright III, an American con artist, joins up with the gang to seek revenge on some unscrupulous city bankers - will they be able to pull off the con before Wright pulls a double-cross on them?
In the high heat of summer, it suddenly looks like it might be the last score for some of the crew.
When Danny and Mickey take up a challenge to determine the group's leadership, they end up engaged in a race against the clock and each other.
