But when’s that ever stopped anyone trying to have them?

Rich People Problems scratches an itch that Corie Henson, EVP, Head of Unscripted for TNT, TBS and truTV, has been hunting for a while.
She told Deadline last year, while developing the project, that she’d been very keen to work with the All3Media-owned production company.
“If you’re a true crime junkie, like me, then you’ve gone to work the next day and fanatically raved about something Raw has produced. Whether it’s Don’t F**k With Cats, Three Identical Strangers or American Animals, their storytelling is beautiful, visceral and holy s**t edge of your seat shocking,” she said. “I’ve basically been professionally stalking the guys for years until they finally agreed to make a TV show with us… and it’s going to be worth it.”
Rich People Problems is executive produced by Glenn Barden and Fiona Stourton and series produced by Tom Lindley.
