"Affluenza" is a word ripped from today’s headlines and used to excuse the bad behavior of the super-wealthy. The condition affl icts only the extremely rich, and occurs when excessive money, power and privilege corrodes the moral compass, warps reality and makes right and wrong impossible to decode. The word is new, but this disorder has been disastrous for decades.
Guilty Rich uses stories of “affluenza” crimes as a window into the lavish lifestyles and extreme wealth that caused them. This unique series brings viewers access to excess, like never before. Focused exclusively on stories where the uber-rich are in some way guilty, every episode pulls the curtain back on the insane money and privileged mentality that fueled each crime.
