Crossover TV Episode: The Jackal Job


In this episode of Leverage: Redemption, the Leverage team tries to find a legendary con artist who now has Alzheimer’s called the Jackal’s greatest score before her abusive caregiver can. One of the Jackal’s cons was in Beaumont-sur-Mer. The Jackal and Beaumont-sur-Mer are from the 1988 movie Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. In the film, the Jackal's real name is Janet Colgate and she's played by Glenne Headly, but in “The Jackal Job,” her real name is Stella Voleur, and she's played by Joanna Cassidy. Since the first syllables of the name “Janet Colgate” are “Ja” and “Col” (Jackal), and “voleur” is French for thief, both are likely aliases. 

This crossover is one of hundreds included in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
