Channel 4 releases the first trailer for Loaded

With Nick Helm, Jim Howick and Jonny Sweet

Channel 4 has released the first trailer for Loaded, its new sitcom starring Nick Helm, Jim Howick and Jonny Sweet.

The show is is about four tech entrepreneurs who become multi-millionaires overnight.

Their transformation is described as 'a raging hurricane of money, excess and millionaire's guilt', as the money puts their friendship to the test.

Samuel Anderson, who played Clara Oswald's boyfriend Danny Pink in Doctor Who, complete the core cast.

Helm plays an eccentric artist called Watto, in recovery from years of drug and alcohol use, who created the visual look of their hit game, and who is prone to extravagantly expensive splurges with his newfound wealth.

Sweet plays Ewan, a shy, awkward and physically vulnerable coder. Howick's fretful character Josh is described as the moral compass of the group, while Anderson's Leon is the persuasive business brain behind the company.

Premium American broadcaster AMC will also be airing the series, based on an Israeli series called Mesudarim.

It is being rewritten by Fresh Meat and Peep Show writer Jon Brown, who called it 'a rollercoaster of pain and mistrust and confusion and guilt and isolation'.

It is the second British comedy about sudden tech millionaires, following Carters Get Rich, which is currently airing on Sky1.
