For the characters of Loaded, becoming a millionaire overnight isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Over the course of Season 1, Josh, Ewan, Watto and Leon show four different ways to handle newfound riches and, as director Elliot Hegarty puts it in a video wrapping up Season 1, “it ain’t all pretty.”
Beyond the Ferrari, helicopter and posh house, the characters are thrown into a completely new world they can’t quite navigate.
“The characters do go on some quite big journeys,” says Executive Producer Kate Norrish, but not always for the better.
“I’m not sure that they’re the sort of people who are good at learning big, abstract lessons,” says Jonny Sweet (Ewan), “I feel like they’re gonna carry on making similarly stupid mistakes.”
After all, money does not equal happiness.
As Watto puts it, “it just makes everything bigger — cars, houses, problems.”
