Crackle Greenlights ‘Snatch’ Drama Series Based on Guy Ritchie Movie

Sony’s Crackle has ordered a 10-episode, one-hour drama series based on Guy Ritchie’s 2000 heist movie, “Snatch.”

The free, ad-supported Internet TV network announced the new show at its 2016 upfront presentation in New York — Crackle’s only new original programming announcement, along with renewals of shows including “The Art of More,” Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” and “SuperMansion” with Bryan Cranston.

Crackle positioned the “Snatch” series as being in the vein of “Fargo,” the TV series on FX based on the movie from Joel and Ethan Coen, carrying the spirit of the setting in the original feature film while “creating a new world.”

The “Snatch” series, inspired by a real-life gold bullion heist in London, will center on a group of twenty-something, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime. The hoods must quickly learn to navigate London’s underworld in encounters with rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend.

Crackle did not announce expected release date for the “Snatch” series or other details.

The 2000 film “Snatch,” from Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Screen Gems, starred Benicio Del Toro, Dennis Farina, Jason Flemyng, Brad Pitt, Vinnie Jones, Jason Statham and Rade Sherbedgia.
