Envy The Rich? Watch Succession
They are partial to helicopter transport. They are accustomed to the finest things in life. They are at the tippy top of the enviable 1%. They are the Roy family on HBO’s hit drama Succession.
The show follows the hated head of a media conglomerate and his wickedly spoiled and self-loathing adult children. The show is reportedly loosely based on Rupert Murdoch and provides insight to the troubled waters of the elite, driven by an upside-down prodigal son narrative.
The dramatic twists and turns feature calculated partnerships with elected officials, back-alley business dealings and copious amounts of drugs, all in response to the impending possibility that patriarch Logan Roy is near death.
Tune in on Sundays at 9PM EST and watch as his children compete for a net worth most can only dream of.
