The Riches

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

What's yours is mine.

The Malloys are a family of Irish Travellers and accomplished con artists. Wayne Malloy (Eddie Izzard), the head of the family, gets on the wrong side of a Traveller clan, and the family goes on the run. On their way, they accidentally kill a rich couple who are moving to a new neighborhood. The Malloys take the chance to adopt the couples' identities and house, and begin to experience life in the upper class.

This Dramedy (emphasis on Drama, but with Eddie Izzard in the cast, uproarious comedy was more or less inevitable) ran on FX for 2 seasons in 2007-2008, and Eddie Izzard has stated that he is working on a movie script to finish off the story.
