Filthy Rich is an upcoming American serialized satirical dramedy television series that was ordered to series by Fox in May 2019.[1] It is based on the New Zealand series of the same name, and is scheduled to premiere in January 2020.[2]

Premise[edit]

Described as a "Gothic family drama in which wealth, power and religion collide - with outrageously soapy results," the series centers on a mega-rich Southern family who made their money with a Christian television network, and whose sudden passing of its founder in a plane crash brings out three more family members (who he had written in his will due to having affairs with different women), who'll inherit the empire for their own reasons.

Cast[edit]

  • Kim Cattrall as Margaret Monreaux, the Oprah-like host and co-founder of the Sunshine Network, who is determined to control the business by all means necessary.

  • Steve Harris as Franklin Lee, a lawyer hired by the Monreauxes to handle the legal affairs after Eugene's death
