A provocative, bitingly funny series that explores themes of power, politics, money, and family, played out within a rich and dysfunctional family whose patriarch is CEO of Waystar Royco, one of the world's largest media and entertainment conglomerates.
The show follows Logan Roy and his four children who control one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world, tracking their lives as they contemplate what the future will hold for them once their aging father begins to step back from the company.
On his 80th birthday, media magnate Logan Roy shocks his family by announcing he's staying on indefinitely as CEO of Waystar Royco. The news shatters son Kendall, the heir apparent, while tempers flare as Logan's other children raise objections over Logan's intentions.
Logan's incapacitation sets off a heated succession debate among his children, as the board rushes to inform the media about leadership contingencies before the stock market opens. Kendall makes an impassioned final plea to keep Waystar Royco in the family.
With Waystar's stock plunging to dangerous lows, Kendall is confronted with a major crisis involving a secret bank debt. Upset with Marcia for pulling rank in the Roy apartment, Shiv decides to enlist an old paramour to conduct a background check on Logan's third wife.
With the company's annual foundation gala approaching, Kendall polishes up his speech while enlisting an on-air personality from the Waystar's ATV Networks to accompany him. Shiv tries to minimise damage from a sordid photo that threatens a client's political future.
