Hulu has revealed the official trailer for the upcoming Australian Original series "The Artful Dodger," exploring the adult double life of Charles Dicken's famous prince of thieves, aka The Artful Dodger. All eight episodes of season one, starring Thomas Brodie-Sangster, David Thewlis and Maia Mitchell, premiere on Hulu Wednesday, November 29.
SYNOPSIS: "The Artful Dodger" explores the adult double life of Charles Dickens' famous prince of thieves, Jack Dawkins aka The Artful Dodger, whose fast pickpocketing fingers have turned into the skilled hands of a surgeon.
Set in 1850s Australia, in the lively colony of Port Victory, Dodger's past returns to haunt him with the arrival of Fagin, luring him back into a world of crime. A greater threat - to Dodger's heart - is Lady Belle, the Governor's daughter, determined to become the colony's first female surgeon.
From heists to life-and-death surgeries to the harsh realities of the criminal world mingling with the middle ground and gentry, this is a tale of reinvention, betrayal, redemption, and love with a twist.
