You can’t be filthy rich without getting a little dirty. STAR World welcomes you into the lives of the filthy rich ‘Darlings’ of New York with Dirty Sexy Money! Premiering Thu, 20 Aug at 10pm, the critically-acclaimed series boasts an all-star cast including Emmy nominee Peter Krause (Dirty Sexy Money), Golden Globe winner Donald Sutherland (Ordinary People) and William Baldwin (Backdraft).

The adorable ‘Darlings’ are here to stay
The Darling clan is one of New York’s most powerful families. With their power and prestige, they are often involved in embarrassing scandals and serious legal troubles. Fortunately the family patriarch, Tripp Darling (Sutherland), has recruited idealistic lawyer Nick George (Krause) to take care of their legal needs and protect the family name.

Since his late father also represented the Darlings, Nick has grown up in the shadow of this high-profile family. Despite his reluctance to follow in his father’s footsteps, Nick is persuaded to take on the job as the Darlings’ personal lawyer.

Unsure of what to expect, the show mixes intelligent drama with a very sharp wit. Its’ strongest feature is its beautifully developing characterization of its main protagonists, each revealing themselves to have more depth than we are originally shown. The strong moral undertones of the show lend themselves well to family viewing, and leave the viewer feeling satisfied at the end of each show, which is nice when nearly every other drama deems it necessary to leave the viewer with a cliffhanger. Put simply, this is one of the best developing shows on television, which is too interesting for the glimpse into the lives of the uber-wealthy it gives us.

Catch up with the filthy rich ‘Darlings’ starting 20th of August, every Thursday at 10pm only on STAR World.
