"The Syndicate" is a Kay Mellor drama about the changing fortunes of five people who work at a cut-price supermarket in Leeds. In the opening episode they face an uncertain future when the store is threatened with closure. Just when it seems things can't get any worse, their lives are turned upside down when they jointly win £18million on the lottery. Will the money be the answer to all their problems or is life just about to get a whole lot more complicated? Timothy Spall heads the cast alongside Matthew McNulty, Lorraine Bruce and Joanna Page. The five-part series premiered on BBC One in March 2012.
