Riches follows the exploits of the stylish, privileged, super successful Richards family that's shaken when wealthy patriarch Stephen Richards (Hugh Quarshie) passes suddenly, setting the stage for a messy battle over his coveted empire.

Check out the trailer below:



"'Riches' is a love letter to Black London and it has been thrilling to create the Richards family and celebrate their opulence, their ambition, and their immigrant grit," said Ajayi in an interview with Variety.

"Our talented ensemble of actors are a joy and I'm excited to be partnering with Amazon Studios and ITV, and working alongside the powerhouses of Greenacre Films and Monumental Television to bring this show to the screen."

All episodes of Riches are now exclusively streaming on Prime Video.
