BBC One’s four-part drama Dark Money (AKA Dark Mon£y) will premiere on Monday July 8th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Dark Money tells the story of The Mensahs, an ordinary working-class family from North London whose youngest son has recently finished filming a major Hollywood movie role. But Manny and Sam’s world is shattered when Isaac reveals he was abused whilst out in America by a renowned filmmaker. Although guilt-ridden, the family decide to accept a substantial pay-off to keep silent, believing the money will help start a new life, enable them to heal and avoid the publicity hell of pressing charges against a celebrity.
They are wrong. Damage runs deep, and the price of taking the money may be too high.
