Made of Money With Brian Cox S1
Made of Money With Brian Cox is a unique and deeply personal investigation into our complicated relationship with money and wealth.
The two-parter follows the Succession star as he looks at the impact of wealth on society and our lives at a time when the wealth gap is growing ever more divided. He shares his own story, from growing up in poverty to becoming a highly paid Hollywood actor, best known for his Golden Globe-winning performance as Logan Roy, one of the richest and most bloodthirsty capitalists on TV.
With his wry humour and intrepid curiosity, Cox rolls up his sleeves in a soup kitchen in the Bronx, mingles with supermodels on Miami Beach, meets the homeless in Harlem and drops in on a billionaire in London’s most expensive house. His blunt questioning and passionate anger exposes a world in which the richest 1% own half of the world’s wealth and the safety net for the poorest is being swept away on both sides of the Atlantic.
