Performers, Cast and Crew:
Starring Clive Owen (GOSFORD PARK, CHILDREN OF MEN) as charismatic con artist Stephen Crane, this second season of the British television drama takes on a decidedly darker tone. After coming out of jail, Crane forges an alliance with his opponent Piers Garfield-Ward, as they try to obtain custody of baby Joseph, the son of their deceased former flame. This collection presents all seven episodes from the show's final season: "Jo," "Ashes," "Secrets," "Remembrance," "Blood," "Fall," and "Sacrifice."
Description by Acorn Media Publishing:
Acorn Media announces the January 29, 2008 DVD debut of Chancer, Series 2, offering the final seven episodes of movie star Clive Owen's (Children of Men, Inside Man, Closer, Croupier) breakthrough role.
In the early 1990s television role that made him a huge star in Britain, Owen is positively magnetic as con man Derek Love, a.k.a. Stephen Crane, an irresistible rogue who makes up in moxie what he lacks in morals. Series 2 finds Derek released from prison and scheming to save not only the estate of his former romantic rival, but also the orphaned child of his late love. Packed with devilish plot twists and double crosses galore, Chancer's complete second series features returning faces from Series 1 as well as a new romantic interest played by Louise Lombard (The House of Eliott, CSI), a woman on the run from her own dodgy past.
In a plot packed with double crosses of the heart and the wallet, Chancer propels powerfully toward its surprising, devastating conclusion.
A ratings smash on British TV from 1990-91, Chancer has been compared to Dallas, Dynasty, and Twin Peaks. Grammy-winner Jan Hammer (Miami Vice) provides the terrific original music.
