I have long been a fan of Anthony Andrews so when I saw he was in this mini series called The Syndicate, I had to get it from my library. It’s 6 episodes total, 1 hour for each episode.
There were evidently two seasons prior to this one but you don’t need to see each season in order to follow along. For a full summery of this show click HERE.
Basically, each season focuses on lottery winners, how their lives change and a bit of drama and mystery thrown in.. It’s a drama and we very much enjoyed it. In All or Nothing we meet Lord Hazelwood (Anthony Andrews) and the small staff of Hazelwood Estate. There was a large staff on this gorgeous estate but due to deepening debt, the staff is down to six people.
These six are loyal to Lord Hazelwood, a very down to earth fellow but Hazelwood’s wife and step-son seem to plot against him to sell the estate. This changes quickly when the 6 staff members win the lottery.
The estate is stunning as are the landscaped grounds. It’s filmed in the coastal town of Scarborough. In real life Hazlewood Manor is actually Bramham Park country house, located near Wetherby and Leeds in West Yorkshire.
It’s a good drama and I will certainly try and find the first two seasons. Mark Addy stars in one of those seasons. I liked him in The Full Monty as well as Game of Thrones. This is another excellent show from Acorn TV.
