AMC will launch the new comedy series Loaded on July 17, 2017 following a new episode of Preacher season two. In addition to announcing the premiere date, the network also released the first trailer for the series starring Jim Howick (The Aliens), Samuel Anderson (The History Boys), Jonny Sweet (Babylon), Nick Helm (Funny Valentines) and Mary McCormack (The West Wing). Loaded was created by Muli Segev and Assaf Harel and is based on the award-winning series Mesudarim. Segev, Harel, Kate Norrish, Polly Leys, Howard Burch, Avi Nir, and Jon Brown are the executive producers.
Loaded‘s first season will consist of eight episodes.
The Plot: Loaded centers around the lives of Josh (Howick), Leon (Anderson), Ewan (Sweet) and Watto (Helm) who have just sold their start up videogame company Idyl Hands to Casey (McCormack) for millions, and overnight their lives change drastically. The four 30-somethings must answer to their high powered, no-bullshit boss Casey and are suddenly transformed from “people who play games” to “serious players in the game.” Amid a raging hurricane of money, excess, and “Millionaire guilt,” Loaded is about friendship, gluttony, ambition, and how money can put even life-long relationships to the test.
