Oh dear!

Scott Bailey

This could totally work. Except that it's Oliver and Bill Sykes who are the action team, Oliver over the transom to open the door for Bill, just like Dickens had it. Nancy will later stitch up Bill's wounds and tell Oliver, "Don't you be getting yourself wounded like old Billy here." "But Nancy, Bill saved my life!" Etc. Fagin's gang will be mostly in the background, coming into the adventures when special talents are needed. Dodger will be a security systems expert. Fagin as Q. Mr Bumble will be the private detective hired by the bad guys to track down the Twist gang. I would watch this. Yes I would. And it's modern TV; the "sexy" will take care of itself. Modern TV knows how to make everything sexy.
