From TNT and Raw (Three Identical Strangers and Don't F**k with Cats), comes Rich & Shameless, a seven-part series of films that tell the true stories of the successes, failures, thrills, and miseries that accompany the kind of wealth that few people can ever understand. Using a combination of powerful interviews, unique archives, and atmospheric visuals, the series goes behind the public façade to reveal the dangers of great prosperity. Rich and Shameless will also spotlight the untold story of the darkness at the heart of the "Girls Gone Wild" phenomenon, the mysterious death of crypto-millionaire & suspected con artist Gerald Cotten, Seagram's heiress Clare Bronfman and her involvement in a nefarious sex cult, the unlikely battle between Martin Shkreli and The Wu-Tang Clan, the disappearance of NBA great Bison Dele (formerly Brian Williams), and fashion mogul Peter Nygard's quest for eternal youth. Now here's a look at the trailer, overview, and preview clips for TNT's Rich & Shameless: The Crime Against Pam & Tommy:
