TORONTO: CraveTV has exclusively acquired Snatch as an original for its streaming service in Canada.
Loosely based on the popular movie of the same name, the 10×1-hour drama begins streaming exclusively on CraveTV on Friday, April 7, as part of #iCraveFridays. The series stars Rupert Grint (Harry Potter) and Dougray Scott (Fear the Walking Dead, Doctor Who). It is executive produced by Alex De Rakoff (Dead Man Running), who also serves as writer and showrunner and is inspired by a real-life heist in London.
“CraveTV Originals are key differentiators for CraveTV and we’re excited to expand our slate to include this wild crime drama,” said Mike Cosentino, the senior VP of content and programming at Bell Media. “Following in the spirit of film-to-television adaptations, we look forward to bringing this tale of London’s underworld to Canadian viewers on CraveTV.”
