Crime Drama SNATCH Coming to CraveTV April 17th
All caught up and craving more? Check out CraveTV’s new exclusive offering.
Coming April 17th is a show that’s sure to catch the eye of crime drama fans. SNATCH will be showcased on Bell media’s subscription channel, as a new CraveTV original.
Bell describes the series, which yes, is loosely based on Guy Ritchie’s movie by the same name, as one that “centers 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 group must quickly learn to navigate the “treacherous waters of London’s underworld” as “rogue cops, international mobsters, and local villains descend.”

The series stars Rupert Grint, otherwise known as Ron Weasley from Harry Potter, and it joins the list of other content available only to Canadian audiences via CraveTV.
What you really want to know though is of course this: is the show actually any good?
What Reviewers Say
The jury is still out, pretty much. Unfortunately, RottenTomatoes.com currently does give the series a groveling 31% approval rating from 13 critics, but the better news is that general audiences seem to love it.
30 non-critic viewers (hopefully not the show’s creators?) have already given it a contrasting 84% endorsement, and so something must be sort of enticing.
The movie the series is based on, Guy Ritchie’s 2001 production, is pretty highly rated with audiences loving it and critics remaining moderately pleased. Let’s see if the series can live up to the original.
