The hit game show Who Wants to Be a Milionaire? was actually created in Britain before travelling to the US. This series looks at the cheating scandal that shook the UK, when a husband and wife team were accused of working with a 3rd person to win the big prize. Matthew Macfadyen (best known as the inept son-in-law on Succession) stars as the husband and his performance is the show’s strongest asset (although everyone is good). Director Stephen Frears has guided the production with an assured hand, but the show lacks much emotion. Even though it revolves around the couple, it’s more about the game process and the legal procedural that followed. Still, it’s a fascinating examination of this unique event. (3 one-hour episodes on AMC)

3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5)
