The Bad Old Days of Dallas and Dynasty were gloriously resurrected in this over-the-top ABC drama series about the impossibly wealthy, incredibly dysfunctional Darling family of New York. After the death of his father Dutch George (Trevor St. John) in a suspicious plane crash, straight-arrow attorney Nick George (Peter Krause) inherited the responsibility of looking after the Darlings--a job that largely consisted of keeping their names out of print and the family members out of prison. Actually, Nick was bribed into assuming his new responsibilities by patriarch Tripp Darling (Donald Sutherland), who offered the young attorney a $10 million annual retainer. Nick accepted only on condition that he never be required to tell lies on the family's behalf (something his less ethical father had no qualms about). Even so, it seemed at times that Nick would be corrupted in spite of himself, and the possibility of this occuring put something of a strain on the relationships between Nick, his wife Lisa (Zoe McLellan), and their impressionable daughter Kiki (Chloe Moretz). To be sure, the Darlings were quite a piece of work. Despite his protestations of respectability and fidelity, Tripp had no qualms about cheating on his imperious wife Letitia (Jill Clayburgh) with her ex-friend Natalie (Tamara Feldman). Their eldest son Patrick (William Baldwin) found his political aspirations threatened by his affair with transgendered Carmelita (Candis Cayne). Another son, Rev. Brian Darling (Glenn Fitzgerald), was saddled with an illegitimate child and weighed down by a long-standing hatred for the comparatively virtuous Nick. Daughter Karen, an unregenerate boozehound, loved to tell everyone within earshot (including her various husbands) that she had lost her virginity to Nick years earlier. And as for twin siblings Juliet (Samaire Armstrong) and Jeremy (Seth Gabel), she was a spoiled-brat pill-popper with vague aspirations of movie stardom, while he was an overage slacker with a gift for wreaking havoc and destruction wherever he went. Incredibly, there were even worse examples of humanity on the series, notably Tripp Darling's deadly rival Simon Elder (Blair Underwood). Dirty Sexy Money premiered September 26, 2007.
