The Riches - Season 1

In the opening when we see Nina in New York, she's been promised this incredible promotion. She's on top of the world professionally, and yet we see there's this ripple of discontentment in her life. Like a lot of women of that age, she's asking questions like what am I doing and where am I supposed to be? Even in being thrusted the drama of her half-siblings and all the mysteries, we see her come alive. There's a connection to these people that she feels and the journey Nina has gone through over the season is this engagement with her roots. She's a London girl, she's a daddy's girl for good or ill. It's important for her to take ownership of her father's legacy and be the person to steer the ship. Nina works hard to save the business and she's all in by the end of the season.

Gus and Alesha have two very different journeys within the company this season. What did you want to explore between those characters and how does what they've gone through impact them going into a potential season 2?

Gus and Alesha are the closest siblings, but there are things they don't talk about, like sexism in the family or the unspoken ways in which Alesha was undervalued and underestimated because of her dyslexia. Her journey was really important in that she's showing she is more than her diagnosis. Alesha is capable and smart, so when she's given support by Nina she's able to grow and flourish in the business as she takes up space. By the end of the season, Nina and Alesha are not in the best place, so it's going to be interesting to explore how Nina attempts to consolidate power as CEO and whether Alesha decides to become part of Nina's vision for the company or go back to her thriving influencer life she was building.

With Gus, he's a nice guy, but is he a cutthroat CEO figure? Nothing in the season reveals that, but he was given this opportunity and there's a measure of entitlement with which he moves through the world. We're also interested to see how he will adapt to Nina consolidating power in any potential next season. Also, how will he deal with the fact that he may be a beta male? That's not necessarily a bad thing, and it's when he tries to be somebody he's not that he gets himself into trouble, whether that's with the police officer who is not targeting him or even in his relationship with Sasha.

Wanda had a really great arc this season in that she started quite abrasive, brash and very entitled in the opening episode, but beneath that, what comes through is that she had love for her father. It's why she makes the decision during the season to vote against her family to protect his legacy. The question of how or if she will find out the truth about her parents is super important, because her grief was palpable all season. Stephen is not her biological father, but he was involved in her life in every other meaningful way. Also, in this family of secrets, what is the fallout for her losing part of her identity? I think we're going to see her grow up a little bit and since she has stepped outside the family, it'll be exciting to see her figure out who she is.

There has to be more to it. There's something about the Richards family that they do drag themselves into trouble even if there is none. There's too much curiosity amongst the family and we have players floating in the middle with different agendas. Andre's still there, can we really trust him? Gideon's in the wind. That's a really present storyline that could part of a second season. Fundamentally, the theme of the show is family and whether the ties that bind are healthy. Also, Finn may have questions himself that bring him back into the orbit of the family.

If we're lucky enough to get a second season, there's a couple of elements I want to push forward. The challenges in the business Nina will face as she tries to consolidate her power in a second season. We're going to dig into the specific issues that a Black-owned, Black business faces. There will be more secrets, new alliances because the tension and dynamics are always shifting within the siblings, more sexual tension. Ultimately we had a couple of Big Bads and Gideon is revealed as such at the end of the season, but I'm not sure he's fully gone.

The Riches (styled as the Rihes) is an American television drama which was originally broadcast from March 12, 2007, to April 29, 2008, on FX. The series stars Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver as members of a family of Irish Travellers who "steal the American dream" by stealing the home and identities of a wealthy dead couple. The series received positive reviews but was cancelled after two seasons.

Originally named Low Life, the show was created and head written by Dmitry Lipkin for Maverick Films and FX Networks. The one-hour pilot was written by Lipkin and Eddie Izzard, and directed by Carl Franklin. The pilot was then rethought and reshot over 10 days by Peter O'Fallon. It first aired on March 12, 2007, followed by a further 12 episodes.[1] Additionally, the first two episodes were made available on the Internet prior to their television air dates. FX announced on May 8, 2007, that The Riches would return for a second season,[2] the first episode of which aired on March 18, 2008.[3] The second season ran for 7 episodes.FX President John Landgraf described The Riches as a "family show", albeit one featuring "a family unlike any television viewers have seen before".[4]

The first season's episodes began airing on March 12, 2007. The pilot episode and episode 1.2 ("Believe the Lie") were made available early for online viewing at MSN, Yahoo!, and at various times.[12]

A second season of 13 episodes was announced on May 8, 2007, by FX for broadcast in the first half of 2008. It premiered on March 18, 2008. Due to a long writer's strike, only 7 episodes were produced.

In a review of the second season, The Hollywood Reporter said that "Izzard and Driver remain a joy to watch in this odd but fascinating series that is derivative of nothing on TV",[22] while the San Francisco Chronicle described the second season as "gloriously inventive, daring and provocative".[23]

Nina gathers the entire family to talk about Gideon before mass chaos breaks loose; they all reel it in a little to try and figure out their next move. Finally, after putting the pieces together, Nina and Andre head to confront Gideon. Andre starts to reveal piece by piece what Gideon did with the money. Nina reminds him that the only way they get past this is if he pays them every dollar back. Deborah Ayorinde did what she has done all season as Nina and delivered a KNOCK-OUT dialogue in this scene.

In Riches, show creator Abby Ajayi who previously wrote How to Get Away With Murder and Inventing Anna, has provided viewers with a riveting tale of corporate greed blended with the relatable family dynamics of jealousy and rivalry. The first season consists of a neat and tidy 6 episodes of around 45 minutes each which is obviously leaving fans anxious to see how things turn out with the Richards clan. While a second season has yet to be confirmed, you can watch season 1 of Riches now on Amazon Prime Video.

One of the most popular Hindi shows, 'Breathe Into The Shadows' is back with its second season. The crime drama thriller will see Abhishek Bachchan reprising his role as Dr Avinash Sabharwal and his alter ego J. The story resumes with Kabir (played by Amit Sadh) continuing his mission to track down J. The gripping trailer of the show makes it an engrossing watch. Watch on: Amazon Prime Video
