Catching Lightning is a new four-part documentary series that chronicles mixed martial artist fighter “Lightning” Lee Murray’s role in one of the largest cash heists in history. Working his way up from the rough and tumble streets of south London, Murray made it into the UFC as an MMA fighter. However, in 2006, he was arrested for spearheading a massive cash heist in which he and his associates stole nearly £53 million in cash (more than $92 million at the time) from Great Britain’s Securitas Depot. The documentary will follow his rise to success, as well as fall from grace, with new interviews, striking revelations, and never-before-heard information about the robbery.
