ICE (Audience Network) – Starts 16th November – Renewed
Crime drama about the LA diamond trade, where the members of a Green family business are dropped into a spot of bother when Freddy, the drug fan and diamond connoisseur of the family, ends up killing a prominent diamond dealer.
This leads to Freddy being held by a rather miffed crime lord, by the name of Sister Rah, who demands that his half brother Jake has to raise a vast amount of cash for his release. After tapping up all his contacts Jake is whisked away to a meet with the Rah where he’s told to complete a prearranged deal for some blood diamonds that the deceased dealer was supposed to complete.
At the meet Jake is reunited with Freddy who with Rainman type skills identifies the type of diamond they their about to purchase, while Jake notes something is afoot and bails out of the deal.
With them not going through with the transaction puts the already miffed Sister Rah to the point of feeding them to her Hyenas before they reveal it was a sting set up by the Feds. This doesn’t curry enough favour to settle the debt and are told in no uncertain terms that they’ll be doing more errands for her.
It’s a solid opening ep which takes a while to get going, but when it does it’s an entertaining watch where the only real annoyance in the show ends up being Ray WInstones wandering american accent.
