Filled with intriguing story lines and a smoking hot cast, Dirty Sexy Money focuses on a idealistic attorney wrestling with his father’s death and the family that may be responsible for it.

Peter Krause (Six Feet Under) stars as Nick George, whose father was the legal counsel for the Darling family and good friends with patriarch Tripp (Donald Sutherland) and his wife Letitia (Jill Clayburgh).

When Nick is offered to take his father’s position with the family, he goes through a gamut of emotions: He never saw his father because his dad was always tending to the Darlings’ needs; he had dated troubled Darling daughter Karen when they were younger. He doesn’t want to get sucked up into the drama that is their life but, like his father, he is unable to resist both the salary (upwards of $10 million) and the Darlings’ tremulous connection to his dad.

But that money doesn’t come without strings; Nick serves as both counsel and therapist to the family.

Occasionally, he is also asked to play the role of errand boy (When favored son and rising politician Patrick (William Baldwin)–who is married–wants to break up with his tranny girlfriend, he asks Nick to do it. And to give her a check to show his affection). To his credit, Nick says, “I’m not going to go into a hotel and give a tranny hooker a check.” To which Patrick says, “She’s not a hooker!”

All 10 episodes of the debut season are included in this boxed set.

Executive produced by Greg Berlanti (Dawson’s Creek, Brothers & Sisters, Eli Stone), the thoroughly entertaining drama has a group of characters that keep viewers glued to the screen. Karen is a boozy socialite who switches husbands often; Patrick can’t stand up to his wife, even after she kinda-sorta shoots him; Tripp and Letitia have a litany of secrets that affects their marriage and their children; Nick finds himself sparring (both verbally and otherwise) with their eldest son, the Rev. Brian Darling.

And whether Nick has found a friend or foe in charming multi-millionaire Simon Elder (Blair Underwood) has yet to be determined.

Dirty? Yes. Sexy? Absolutely. As for the money, it just may be the root of some of the Darlings’ evil.
