The Riches

I finally found a trailer for The Riches so that I can post this. I've seen little promo clips here and there, and this just explains it better than I can. It looks great, and it's finally going to start on March 12th, so don't forget to set your Tivo's. The show stars Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver (both British) covering up their accents, and playing an American couple. They stumble into the American dream without having to work for it, and they try to ride it out without screwing it up. I love the line in the trailer that Eddie delivers at a cocktail party "I'm in pediatrics, children mostly, retards." Maybe not the most politically correct line in television history, but it makes me giggle. :)

I'm looking forward to this too, but Eddie is not pulling off the American accent too well IMO.

I hadn't seen any actual show footage before this, just the spots with Eddie and Minnie talking.

*fingers crossed*

That retard line was awesome.

The accents were better in this footage than they were in the other previews I've seen.

I just hope that Eddie's accent doesn't affect peoples view of the show, and it ends up being successful.
