This series follows five employees of a small cut-price supermarket in Leeds. When their supermarket comes under threat of closure and they risk losing their jobs, things look tough for the five employees of the local store. In this current economic climate finding a solution seems impossible and desperate measures have to be taken! But then the unthinkable happens... they win £18 million on the lottery. They can’t believe their luck. Surely this is the answer to all their problems. As wild celebrations and spending sprees ensue, reality quickly sinks in when new troubles come to the surface for the winners.
The Syndicate follows Bob, Denise, Leanne and brothers Stuart and Jamie as they adjusted to becoming overnight millionaires. The win of a lifetime will change their lives, loves and relationships... some for the better and some for the worse.
The Syndicate is a touching, often funny, cautionary tale that portrays the truth behind the dreams of instant riches, gently reminding us to be careful what we wish for.
The first series was a huge success and is now available on DVD
