Thief is a TV miniseries that debuted on the FX network. The show stars Andre Braugher as Nick Atwater, the leader of a robbery crew who must balance planning heists with his personal life. While Nick struggles to raise his teenage stepdaughter, played by Mae Whitman, his crew is relentlessly targeted by a detective from the police force as well as by rivals from the Chinese mafia.
In the opening episode, Nick and his crew break into a San Francisco bank vault in Chinatown. His team is later forced to return the money they stole in an intense showdown with the Chinese mob, who turns out to be the original owners of the money. Not content with simply having their money returned, the Chinese mafia hatches a plan to murder Nick and his crew, setting the stage for heavy action in later episodes.
Thief is overall an enthralling show, telling the perspective both of Nick's criminal crew as well as the seedy underbelly of the Chinese Mafia and the law enforcement pursuing both of them. Andre Braugher ended up receiving an Emmy for his playing of lead character Nick Atwater, and the show garnered much critical acclaim.
