Dead Rich is a black comedy, a cautionary tale for our times.

Dead Rich Synopsis

The Spenders are Britain's Favourite Family - they are glamorous, rich and very, very famous, everything that their celebrity obsessed culture requires them to be. Their charisma and looks ensure that they are constantly feted, and hounded, by the press. The public adores them. They live what appears to be a charmed and enviable existence.

In the claustrophobic confines of their exquisite houses there is a darker reality. Isolated and hemmed in by the paparazzi and their crazed fans, they are trapped in their fame. Constantly surrounded by an army of long-suffering employees: stylists, PAs, personal trainers, drivers, security teams, hair and make-up artists, managers, agents, publicists – they are never alone but always lonely – with nothing else to do but 'drink and fight and screw' they breakfast on prescription drugs, lunch on vodka and dine on anything illegal they can get their hands on.

Their privileged, high profile lifestyle is shattered when tragedy strikes - tearing apart the fragile fabric of their existence, and sending them spinning out of control.
