Overview

This typically iconoclastic FX network comedy-drama series was dedicated to the proposition of "Stealing the American Dream." The Malloys were a family of "travellers," roving con artists who lived perpetually on the fringes of society and just outside the reach of the law. After years of running scams and fleecing the unsuspecting, Wayne Malloy Eddie Izzard began to wonder if it was all worth the effort. At the same time, Wayne's drug-addict wife Dahlia Minnie Driver had been released from prison after a two-year stretch, and was raring to go back on the road with her husband and her equally disreputable children Sam Aidan Mitchell, Cael Noel Fisher and Dehliah Shannon Marie Woodward. While barreling through the Southland in their RV, the Malloys were involved in a traffic accident not their fault, for a change! in which the other drivers, a married couple, were killed. Rifling through the dead motorists' belongings, Wayne and Dahlia discovered that the victims were Doug and Cherein Rich, an upper-middle-class couple who'd just purchase a mansion in a gated community somewhere in Louisiana. Thus handed an opportunity to start life anew, the Malloys "became" the Riches and moved into that selfsame mansion, using their conning-and-hustling skills to convince their new neighbors that they were whom they claimed to be. Carrying the charade to the ultimate, Wayne, alias Mr. Rich, sweettalked his way into a job with family lawyer Hugh Panetta Gregg Henry, while Dahlia found work as a dental hygienist and the kids tried to fit in at the local high school. Of course, there was always the possibility or rather the likelihood that the Malloys would revert to their old dishonest ways, especially whenever the former crooked associates would breeze into town. Forever playing fast and loose with manners, morals and audience expectations, the weekly, 60-minute The Riches made its cable-TV bow on March 12, 2007.

    Great series!

    Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver make this rock! Can't imagine The Riches with anyone other than Izzard and Driver. The Riches are living the dream that we all have one time or another . . . living someone elses life of luxury. Great ensemble cast. Will definitely purchase Season 2 when it is available.

    Eddie Izzard was the hook that made me watch "The Riches," but Minnie Driver and the rest of the cast (the kids are great) made me tune in week-after-week. The concept alone is unique and the writing -- a little of Eddie's comedic personality comes through -- is quite good. If you didn't catch the show on FX, do yourself a favor and watch it on DVD. Take a vacation from the major network offerings and treat yourself to this sly offering.

    Maybe I am a King?

    Many a rabid fan Of Eddie Izzard were lured to this show with delicious cookies and little will you know that you are being served a full course meal. In the Pilot this show proves that you are not watching a normal drama when you go from ad-libbed comedy to shattering drama in the course of one car accident. Watching Minnie Driver's Dahila try with everything in her to revive a dead Cherin Rich is heartbreaking. The characters are as deep as the actors that play them. Driver and Izzard really steal the American heart. Watch the gag reel! You must also watch the pilot with commentary- Izzard reveals his golf handicapp. But in the end it is the true spirit of the heart of one family trying to do all they can to stay together that will bring you to Season 2in Summer 2008.
