About This Show

Set in a world where no bad deed goes unrewarded, Burleigh Grime$ examines the overwhelming force of capitalism in America. At the beginnings of his Wall Street career, George Radbourn, a New England blue-blood, is too self-satisfied to recognize that his mentor, Burleigh Grimes, may not be entirely sincere in appearance or agenda. A driven and hard-driving stock market powerhouse, Grimes is a man of infinite calculation and relentless purpose, further assisted in his financial schemes by media maven Elizabeth Bigley. In an arena where the naïve and sentimental face ruin, George struggles for survival under the manipulative hand of Grimes’ flexible business tactics, while also dealing with the arrival of his college sweetheart, Grace Redding, who will soon have to face some difficult choices of her own.

This new comedy about sex, money, rock & roll and a whole lot more is written by Roger Kirby, featuring original music by two-time Tony and Grammy Award nominee David Yazbek. David Warren directs a cast which includes two-time Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominee Wendie Malick.

Desperate Housewives star Mark Moses is properly oily in the title role of Roger Kirby’s dispiriting satire of Wall Street.
