ITV has announced a new six-part drama titled Riches, written by How to Get Away with Murder's Abby Ajayi.
Scheduled to roll cameras in London and New York early next year, it'll follow the wealthy Richards family – consisting of businessman Stephen, his wife Claudia and their adult children Gus, Alesha and Wanda.
"The Richards are all about the good life and they've earned it," teases an official synopsis.
Excited to bring this project to life, Ajayi commented: "The brash, complicated and indefatigable Richards family are a joy to write and I am thrilled that this contemporary story about a Black British family and their ambitions has found a home at ITV with its enviable track record of popular dramas.
"I'm delighted to be working with [producers] Nadine Marsh-Edwards and Amanda Jenks who have long proven their commitment to entertaining, inclusive storytelling."
Meanwhile, ITV's head of drama Polly Hill is over the moon with the writer's work on the series.
"Abby's scripts are brilliant and have you hooked into the story of the Richards family from the start," she shared.
"It's aspirational, entertaining storytelling about power and success, but it's also a brilliant family drama. I think it will be a compelling and addictive show to watch."
Expect Riches to air on ITV in around a year's time.
