They say that money can’t buy happiness. So what – and where – does it get you?
Pack your bags – BOX SETS is taking off to the glamorous French Riviera for a sumptuous new drama series created by Academy Award®-winning writer Neil Jordan. Part thrilling family saga and part high-octane mystery, Riviera tells the story of art curator Georgina. Having found love with a billionaire businessman and philanthropist, her life amongst the international super-rich is one of private jets, fine art and extravagant parties. But her world is blown to pieces when her husband is presumed dead following a mysterious accident; an event that leads her to uncover the dark underbelly of their Vanity Fair lifestyle. The strange circumstances surrounding her husband's supposed death see Georgina united uncomfortably in grief with his elegant and formidable ex-wife, but family rivalries are the last thing on her mind as she embarks on a dangerous path to uncover the truth about her husband and the world he inhabited.
“Life in the lap of luxury… is apparently not all it’s cracked up to be. But television audiences in search of a well-made, well-appointed escape may still want to schedule a visit.” – Variety
“Like its opening credits, a dizzying kaleidoscope of villas and fine arts, Riviera spends as much time luxuriating in wealth as it does telling its story.” – Entertainment Weekly
Starring Julia Stiles (Bourne, Dexter), Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones), Anthony LaPaglia (Without A Trace), Lena Olin (Alias), Adrian Lester (Hustle), Igal Naor (The Honourable Woman).
