          This eight-episode original series revolves around the story of four tech entrepreneurs and childhood friends who, on the heels of selling their gaming company, become multi-millionaires and are forced to deal with the pitfalls that come with being an overnight success.

         The series stars Jim Howick (The Aliens, Yonderland, Horrible Histories), Samuel Anderson (The History Boys, Doctor Who, Trollied), Jonny Sweet (Babylon, Together, Him & Her), Nick Helm (Uncle, Funny Valentines) and Mary McCormack (The West Wing, In Plain Sight, The Newsroom).

 

          Josh (Howick), Leon (Anderson), Ewan (Sweet) and Watto (Helm) who have just sold their start up videogame company Idyl Hands to Casey (McCormack) for millions, and overnight their lives change drastically. The four 30-somethings must answer to their high powered boss Casey and are suddenly transformed from “people who play games” to “serious players in the game.” Amid a raging hurricane of money, excess, and “Millionaire guilt,” “Loaded” is about friendship, gluttony, ambition, and how money can put even life-long relationships to the test.
