Heist (NBC 2006, Dougray Scott, Michele Hicks)

Published

on

Crime drama series Heist told of professional thief Mickey O’Neil (Dougray Scott) who assembles an expert team of career criminals to attempt one of the biggest heists in history. Their plan: Simultaneously rob three of the most renowned jewellery stores on Beverly Hills’ famed Rodeo Drive during Academy Awards week. As this intricate web of deceit unfolds, we learn that there is more than mere monetary gain fueling Mickey’s actions.

Meanwhile, Amy Sykes, lead detective for LAPD’s robbery/homicide division, heads up the task force investigating a series of thefts pulled off by this new crew. Under incredible pressure from her superiors, she must figure out not only who is behind the crimes but also what larger job they are leading up to.

The twist – as Mickey sizes up Detective Sykes, the two unexpectedly fall in love.

The series failed to find traction and was quickly cancelled after five episodes. 7 had been filmed in total but the final two remained unaired.
