PaleyFest Fall TV Previews panels have been ongoing for the last couple of days for a multitude of different shows. PaleyFest is showing us what to look forward to in the upcoming fall TV season. You can find all the different panels so far here. Today, we are focusing on a certain one and that is the panel for Filthy Rich.
Filthy Rich is about a southern Gothic family drama in which wealth, power and religion intersect – more correctly, collide – with outrageously soapy results. Meet the Monreauxes, a mega-rich Southern family famed for creating a successful Christian television network. On the cusp of launching a digital retail arm of the company, the family’s patriarch, Eugene, dies in a plane crash, leaving his wife, Margaret, to take charge of the family business.
Not surprisingly, Eugene’s apparent death greatly impacts the family, who are stunned to learn that Eugene fathered three illegitimate children, all of whom are written into his will. Now, Margaret must use her business savvy and Southern charm to control her newly legitimized heirs, whose very existence threatens the Monreaux family name and fortune.”
I loved watching this panel. You could really feel the love the cast and creators had for Filthy Rich. They discussed how much they loved filming in New Orleans and how the exposure of the city left its positive impression. You could really tell that they fell in love with it.
The cast and crew went on to explain that they were all family and you couldn’t not feel that way with everyone. There was a time to be professional, but there was also a time to be a family, and that bond formed after the second episode. They really drove home the point that they were all family and they had a great time on set filming with each other.
I think that is really important to have in a cast this day and age. A lot of the time, we get casts that have no chemistry whatsoever and it really shows. They also talked about how much fun they have on set and how there are some scenes they can’t even film because they are laughing too hard in the middle of them. It’s just a really great vibe as they each talked about their different experiences.
