AMC has acquired Crackle's original drama series Snatch, starring Rupert Grint, for the U.K.

The 10-episode series will premiere Oct. 31 on AMC U.K., which is exclusive to customers of telecom giant BT.

Snatch was inspired by a real-life heist in London and is based loosely on the Guy Ritchie movie of the same name. The drama 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 series recently premiered in the U.S. on Sony Pictures Television's streaming service Crackle. It was created and executive produced by Alex De Rakoff (writer/director of Dead Man Running and The Calcium Kid).

AMC U.K. has also featured such original AMC dramas as Fear the Walking Dead, The Son and Better Call Saul.
