KATHY BURKE RETURNS TO CHANNEL 4 WITH 'WHO WANTS TO BE RICH?'

In Kathy Burke: All Money (2 x 60’ w/t), Kathy wants to understand why we treat people differently based on how much money they have… or don’t have? And after the biggest global crisis of a century, will our attitudes change?



Born into very little and now wealthy and successful, Kathy says she’s perfectly happy with what she’s got, and doesn’t understand why people worship money or feel they have to spend their lives earning ever more. Across the two episodes, Kathy will aim to meet a raft of people across a broad spectrum of wealth – from the very affluent to those living below the breadline.


Kathy Burke said, “As someone who came from living in poverty in Islington to now owning a house there, I feel I’m a perfect person to look into one of the world’s most divisive subjects”


Gilly Greenslade, Commissioning Editor for Factual Entertainment at Channel 4 said, “We are delighted to welcome Kathy Burke back to Channel 4 to give us her unique and unrivalled take on something we Brits can find quite embarrassing to talk about, money. Kathy is perfectly placed to infiltrate a range of worlds, and most importantly, she’s willing to ask the questions others wouldn’t get away with.”
