SOAPnet to Air First Season of Dirty Sexy Money

Gearing toward its Oct. 1st return, SOAPnet announced that it will air the entire first season of ABC's hit series Dirty Sexy Money on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 9:00AM to 7:00PM. All 10 episodes will be aired in order. The series returns for its second season Wednesday, October 1 at 10 PM ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.

The Darlings of New York’s Upper East Side are absurdly wealthy, but always getting mixed up with the wrong people and finding themselves in the middle of bad situations. They rely on idealistic attorney Nick George (Peter Krause, pictured above) to fix their problems and keep their secrets.

Nick is the son of the Darling’s former consigliere. Though he’d vowed not to follow in his father’s footsteps, Nick decides to work for the Darlings thinking that he can use the big salary as their chief counsel to help others - but quickly finds the job to be more than he bargained for.

The cast includes Peter Krause as Nick George; Donald Sutherland as the powerful family patriarch Tripp Darling; William Baldwin as Patrick Darling, the NY Attorney General; Natalie Zea as eldest daughter and thrice-married Karen Darling; Glenn Fitzgerald as Reverend Brian Darling who’s loathed Nick most of his life but now needs his help; Zoe McLellan as Lisa George; Samaire Armstrong and Seth Gabel as twins Juliet and Jeremy Darling; with Blair Underwood as the mysterious mogul Simon Elder, the Darling family nemesis; and Jill Clayburgh as Letitia Darling.

Episodes include:

9AM – Episode #101 - “Pilot” - When his father dies in a mysterious plane crash, lawyer Nick George reluctantly accepts an offer from billionaire Tripp Darling to take over Nick's father's job as chief counsel for the obscenely wealthy and influential Darling family.

10AM – Episode #102 - “The Lions” - Nick tries to find out who killed his father with the help of airplane mechanic and Darling aficionado Norman Exley.

12PM – Episode #104 - “The Chiavennasca” - At Tripp's behest, Nick travels to a vineyard in Italy to meet with a spy who may know more about the death of Nick's father. Nick appeases his wife Lisa's annoyance with his focus on the Darlings by taking her with him.

1PM – Episode #105 - “The Bridge” - Nick finally has a meeting with Tripp's nemesis, and finds he has more in common with him than he imagined. Since Darling twins Juliet and Jeremy are feuding over Jeremy's affair with Natalie, they decide to throw separate birthday parties for themselves, each budgeted at $1 million dollars.

2PM – Episode #106 - “The Game” - If Nick can convince Tripp to bet his most prized property in a high-stakes poker game, Simon will give Nick the dirt on his father's death. Karen panics when she learns she can't marry her fourth husband until her last divorce is finalized.

6PM – Episode #110 - “The Nutcracker” - Nick learns Simon and Karen are secretly seeing each other, but he refuses to admit why it truly bothers him. Karen bails on the family tradition of watching "The Nutcracker" in order to accept Simon's invitation to meet a mysterious person.

I love that this show is so much like daytime; but at night! They've made it such a complete universe. I came across www.darlingtower.com when I was looking for an update about season two. Awesome. This family is more real than some of the ones on reality TV...
