The Syndicate is a British television drama series that aired on ITV from 2012 to 2021. The show is created by Kay Mellor, who is also known for her work on other successful series such as Fat Friends and In the Club. Each series of The Syndicate follows a different group of individuals who work at or are members of a Yorkshire-based public service organization, such as a hospital or a stately home. The show explores the personal and financial struggles of the characters as they navigate the challenges of their daily lives.

One of the key themes of the show is luck and fate, which Mellor uses to explore the various economic disparities between the characters. The series explores the possibility of winning the lottery and how it would affect the characters differently based on their financial situations, if at all.

The show is critically acclaimed for its strong ensemble cast, featuring a mix of established actors and rising talents. The first series stars Lorraine Bruce, Timothy Spall, Siobhan Finneran, Matthew McNulty, and Joanna Page as a group of five hospital workers who pool their money together to buy a lottery ticket. When they win a staggering £18 million, they find their newfound wealth puts their friendships and relationships to the test.

The second series stars Alison Steadman, Mark Addy, Siobhan Finneran, and Jimi Mistry as workers at a stately home who discover that their jobs are at risk due to the financial difficulties of their employer. When they discover an unclaimed bank account with £14 million, they must decide whether to keep the money and start new lives or return it to its rightful owner.

The third series stars Katherine Rose Morley, Neil Morrissey, Kieran Urquhart, Liberty Hobbs, and Emily Head as a group of young kennel workers who buy a winning syndicate ticket just as their employer goes bankrupt.

The fourth and final series stars Taj Atwal, Kym Marsh, Neil Morrissey, Emily Head, and Joe Sugg, as a group of colleagues from a run-down betting shop who win big after one of them steals a customer's winning ticket.

The Syndicate explores themes such as friendship, loyalty, money, love, and betrayal through a series of interconnected stories that span the course of each season. The show has been praised for its strong writing, compelling characters, and insightful exploration of the lives of working-class people in modern-day Britain.

Overall, The Syndicate is a must-watch for fans of British drama, and for anyone who is interested in exploring the complexities of human relationships and the role that luck and fate can play in our lives.
