THE SYNDICATE: Kay Mellor’s hit TV Drama returns for a fourth series
What would you do if you won the lottery?
Well that's the question that is raised in Kay Mellor's hit TV drama, The Syndicate, which returns to BBC One on Tuesday for a fourth series.
This time round, the story features a lot of dogs! When the owners of Woodvale Kennels announce they are selling the business to a large corporate chain, the staff are devastated to realise they may well be out of a job. This is disastrous news for Keeley (Katherine Rose Morley), Jake (Kieran Urquhart), Roxy (Taj Atwal), Gemma (Liberty Hobbs) and Colette (Emily Head) who all depend on their pay to get them from one month to the next. As the staff’s future is thrown into question the weekly lottery looks like the only lifeline to gambling addict Keeley. So when she checks the ticket with local newsagent Frank (Neil Morrissey) and the machine goes off she is ecstatic! But is everything as it seems and will our syndicate get what’s rightfully theirs?
Set between Yorkshire and Monaco, we see our kennel workers spend every last penny they own to see justice done. In true Mellor-drama style this ‘cat-and-mouse’ thriller is peppered with the comedy, pathos and high-drama audiences have come to expect from The Syndicate.
