"Dirty Sexy Money" to Premiere September 26
Some call it "Dynasty" meets "Six Feet Under," some prefer "'Brothers & Sisters' on Crack." But can a glossy soap opera reminiscent of those opulent sagas from the greedy 1980s survive in the new millennium?
The cast of "Dirty Sexy Money" (including Peter Krause, Donald Sutherland, Billy Baldwin, Jill Clayburgh and Samaire Armstrong) introduced TV critics and the media to their Hiltonesque ensemble drama at the TCA event on Wednesday.
The New York-based series will be a modern day Dynasty about the enigmatic Darling family who hire Peter Krause's character to do all the obscure legal work for them.
Despite being married with a child he has an intimate bond with the Darlings' eldest daughter who herself is engaged.
A Cliff Barnes-type of nemesis to the Darling family will be introduced in the second episode.
The production on the Greg Berlanti ('Brothers & Sisters') and Bryan Singer ('Superman Returns') produced series began on July 16.
It will air on Wednesdays nights at 10 p.m. on ABC following the "Grey's Anatomy" spin-off "Private Practice," beginning September 26.
