“Riches” debuted on the streaming platform on Dec. 2. Since then, fans quickly binged the six episodes in its pilot season. The short season has fans yearning for more.
The series follows Stephen Richards (Hugh Quarshie), who has built a cosmetics empire called Flair and Glory. However, 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.
It is a enthralling show, which brings fans around the world together. The idea that “what happens in this house, stays in this house,” appears bright as day in the Richards family. As secrets of infidelity, money laundering and foul play arise, Flair and Glory’s newly appointed CEO Nina Richards (Deborah Ayorinde) won’t stop until she gets to the bottom of her father’s untimely death.
Ayorinde is joined by Sarah Niles, who portrays her “evil” stepmother Claudia Richards. Emmanuel Imani, CJ Beckford, Ola Orebiyi, Brendan Coyle, Hermione Norris, Nneka Okoye, Saffron Hocking, and Jourdan Dunn round out the cast.
