What it's about

Stephen Richards has built a cosmetics empire, but when he suffers a stroke, his family's secrets and lies rise to the surface and the future of his multi-million-pound company is at stake.

The take

Riches follows the spoiled children of an industry tycoon battling to secure their share of the family empire. In some ways, it’s Britain’s answer to Succession, but in many other ways, Riches is its own thing: riveting, penetrating, and authentic to the Black experience.

Riches can get soapy at times, but the high stakes and verbal spars are engrossing and addictive, especially if you're one for juicy drama. And there's weight to it too—the theatrics are backed by sharp commentary about things like gender and race since, unlike most succession shows, this one centers on a female CEO. Led by powerhouse actresses Deborah Ayorinde and Sarah Niles, Riches is a bold and highly entertaining watch.
