Loaded (Channel 4 2017, Jim Howick, Samuel Anderson)

Loaded Channel 4 2017

A brand new comedy drama about friendship, ambition and gluttony… and the peculiar British distaste for other people’s success and how money can put even life-long friendships to the test. Following the sale of their company Idyl Hands and its hit iPhone game Cat Factory, four friends and business partners – Josh (Jim Howick), Leon (Samuel Anderson), Watto (Nick Helm) and Ewan (Jonny Sweet) – wake up to the brilliant/terrifying realisation that they’re now multi-millionaires. Josh treats his parents to an extravagant around-the-world trip in a backhanded effort to expose them to a bit of culture.

But the company is almost immediately hit by a lawsuit; one of Watto’s old associates claims to have invented a key element of the game. The gang instantly face losing everything they’ve worked so hard for. When the lawsuit is leaked online, their new US boss Casey (Mary McCormack) soon reveals herself to be more ruthless than expected when she orders Leon to fire Watto. And for the first time the guys are forced to ask themselves: ‘Who the hell have we just sold ourselves to?’
