Show Summary
The cast of "Easy Money," a new one-hour drama about a family that runs a high interest loan business, includes Emmy Award-winning actress Laurie Metcalf ("Desperate Housewives," "Roseanne"), Jeff Hephner ("The O.C."), Judge Reinhold ("Swing Vote," "The Santa Clause Trilogy"), Nick Searcy ("Rodney"), Jay Ferguson ("Sleeper Cell"), Gary Farmer ("Moose TV") and Katie Lowes ("The Ghost Whisperer"). Diane Frolov and Andy Schneider ("Northern Exposure," "The Chris Isaak Show," "The Sopranos") serve as Executive Producers for the series, along with producer Brandon Hill. In "Easy Money," 28-year-old Morgan Buffkin (Hephner) finds himself in charge of Prestige Payday Loans, his eccentric family's enormously successful short-term loan business. Any doubts Morgan has about running his family's business are quickly replaced by dealing with family business: Morgan's brother Cooper (Ferguson) insists on driving a silver-plated Hummer, his sister Brandy (Lowes) has questionable morals, he suspects that his mother (Metcalfe) and father (Searcy) are not being completely honest with him about his relation to the family, and every so often, part-time detective Barry (Reinhold) drops in. "Easy Money" follows the Buffkin Family in a modern-day Dickensian tale of money and identity.
