Lock, Stock... is a 2000 television series offshoot from the 1998 film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The series was shown on Channel 4 and starred Ralph Brown, Daniel Caltagirone, Del Synnott, Scott Maslen and Shaun Parkes. Lock, Stock... was Ginger Productions' first commission. The show prominently featured the rhyming slang of London's East End, making it harder for some viewers to comprehend.
A group of four friends (Bacon, Moon, Jamie and Lee) in London run The Lock, a pub. Each episode focuses on them attempting a different business venture and the comedy of errors that ensues. Ralph Brown appears as the local gangland boss "Miami Vice" (a reference to the TV show Miami Vice) and is normally caught up in the trouble the four lads cause.
All episode titles begin with "Lock, Stock... and", followed by a title phrase to describe the content of the episode. This is a play on the title of the movie Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. The pilot is 87 minutes long. The six remaining episodes are 50 minutes long.
