recently confirmed that the first episode of the 8th and final season of its popular action/comedy series, Hustle
, will air on January 06, at 9PM
(BBC1/BBC1 HD). The show revolves around a team of con-men, led by Mickey Bricks (Adrian Lester)
, who feed on the greed of the wealthy.
I'm especially sad to see this show go away, as it was one of my favorites. But it's encouraging to know that a program with a minority-actor in a lead role was able to last for such a long time. And Hustle
is occasionally shown late at night on PBS
, and is available on DVD, so all is not lost.
When the final series of Hustle airs in January, veteran actor Paterson Joseph will guest-star. According to SEEN it, Mickey Bricks and his team will plot to give gold dealer Dexter Gold (Joseph), famed for parting the elderly from their precious treasures in return for a pittance, a taste of his own medicine.
