AMC announced today that their newest series Loaded will premiere on Monday, July 17th at 10/9c following an all-new episode of Preacher.
The network also released a Season 1 trailer previewing the eight-episode original series. The trailer sets the stage for the story of four tech entrepreneurs and childhood friends who, on the heels of selling their gaming company, become multi-millionaires and have to deal with the pitfalls that come with being an overnight success.
Based on Keshet International’s award-winning series Mesudarim created by Muli Segev and Assaf Harel, Loaded is executive produced by Kate Norrish and Polly Leys for Hillbilly Television (The Level); Howard Burch, Avi Nir, Segev and Harel for Keshet and Jon Brown (Fresh Meat, Veep); with Charlie Leech (The Wrong Mans) as producer. The series is co-production between AMC, Channel 4, Hillbilly Television, and Keshet UK.
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).
Loaded centers around the lives of Josh (Howick), Leon (Anderson), Ewan (Sweet) and Watto (Helm) who have just sold their start up video game company Idyl Hands to Casey (McCormack) for millions and changed their lives drastically overnight. The four 30-somethings must answer to their high powered, no-bullshit 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.Read More
