Trailer for US remake of BBC drama series The Syndicate

by | May 14, 2013 | All, Previews, TV News

ABC have released the trailer for Lucky 7. The series is based on Series 1 of Kay Mellor’s drama The Syndicate which starred Timothy Spall and Joanna Page and was shown in the Spring of 2012 on BBC1.

This American remake moves the action from a supermarket to a Gas Station in New York where a group of employees have been paying into their syndicate. 

The trailer seems to be a like for like remake of the original first series of the BBC programme with a few American changes made.

Matt (Matt Long) could get his girlfriend and two kids out of his mother’s house; Matt’s brother, Nicky (Stephen Louis Grush), an ex-con, could pay off a dangerous debt; Samira (Summer Bishil), a second-generation Pakistani immigrant, could afford to go to Juilliard;

Something that fans of the UK original will be surprised is that British actress Lorraine Bruce is reprising her role as linchpin of the group Denise by pulling off a rather convincing Queens accent.  Leanne (Anastasia Phillips), a young mother, could help her daughter realize her dreams; Bob (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.), the store’s manager, could finally retire; and Antonio (Luis Antonio Ramos) could give his wife and kids a whole new life.

No official air date has been confirmed by the US network ABC but this remake looks to have stayed true to the BBC original.
