Written and created by Marnie Dickens (Thirteen) and produced by Mainstreet Pictures, Gold Digger tells the story of wealthy 60 year old Julia as she falls in love with Benjamin, a man 25 years her junior. As this six part series progresses the impact their unconventional relationship has on her family is explored and the secrets of their past are revealed. Has Julia finally found the happiness she's always deserved? Or is Benjamin really the gold digger they think he is?
Marnie Dickens said: “I couldn't be happier to be working with the BBC and Mainstreet on a drama that puts an older woman unequivocally at the heart of the action.”
Piers Wenger said: “Gold Digger is a fantastically sexy thriller and an explosive family drama rolled in to one. This brilliantly original series explores the impact on those around her when a mother’s behaviour deviates from the norm - I’m delighted to announce Marnie’s first series commission for BBC One.
Gold Digger is a 6X60’ drama series written by Marnie Dickens. Executive producers are Laura Mackie and Sally Haynes for Mainstreet Pictures, Elizabeth Kilgarriff for BBC One and Marnie Dickens.
