Watch The Syndicate

This original British television drama explores what happens to regular people when they win the lottery. Each series follows a different group of people who pool together and win on a single ticket, leading to major upheavals in their previously regular lives. Series One follows five people working at a struggling supermarket in the city of Leeds, in West Yorkshire. With five episodes in each series, each episode focuses on a single main character.

Bob (Timothy Spall) is the store manager, a kindly gent planning his retirement. Stuart (Matthew MacNulty) is a young man trying to support his wife and family. Jamie (Matthew Lewis) is Stuart's less than ethical brother, and a bad influence on his struggling sibling. Leanne (Joanna Page) is a secretive young woman who is unhappy with the attention brought on by the win. Denise (Lorraine Bruce) is big hearted innocent who may the most vulnerable of the crew.

The second series follows a new group of five winners, this time workers in a hospital.
