Collaborating with curator Donnamarie Baptiste, guests within “The Crown We Never Take Off” exhibit space enjoyed various art forms from artists like Marryam Noma, Carlos Idun-Tawiah, Tammie Knight, and Morel Doucet that map back to the overlooked efforts of Black entrepreneurs and creatives who, like the Richards family, push boundaries and excel despite the odds.

Riches follows the exploits of the stylish, privileged, super-successful Richards family. When Stephen Richards (Hugh Quarshie) passes suddenly, the family’s world comes crashing down. As his business hangs in the balance, his different sets of children are about to collide as they vie for control.

The six-part series premieres today (December 2) on Prime Video in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Nordics, and Sub-Saharan Africa.
 
Greenacre Films produced the series in association with Monumental Television and got commissioned by ITV. Amazon Studios is co-producing in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Nordics, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Nadine Marsh-Edwards (Unsaid Stories, Been So Long), Amanda Jenks (The Girl, Been So Long), and writer/creator Abby Ajayi serve as executive producers for Greenacre Films and Alison Owen (Ghosts, Harlots, Murder in Provence), and Alison Carpenter (Ghosts, Harlots, Yonderland) are executive producers for Monumental Television.
