JettWatch full episodes now
In this dark and slick crime drama, Carla Gugino stars as Jett, a world-class master thief, who is freshly out of prison. She plans to go straight until she’s convinced (read: forced) by a group of criminal master minds to pull off one last heist – to steal a ring from an Eastern European crime overlord living in Cuba.
And that’s when tragedy strikes.
Soon, that “one last heist” morphs into one job after another as Jett finds herself working for not one crime boss, but two.
Director, writer and executive producer Sebastian Gutierrez says, “Jett is nothing if not practical and tactical. It’s always interesting to have someone who is so good at planning contingencies and potential scenarios be put in situations where at some point, that will all go out the window.”
Salon.com says, “Jett invites everybody to vicariously revel in the story’s sensual power and how the title character moves with it, channels it.” IndieWire agrees that the violent noir is nothing if not stylish: “It’s not a reinvention, but there aren’t many versions of this story that have done it with more style.”
New episodes of the nine-part series land on M-Net on DStv Now every Wednesday at 22:00.
