MONEY MONEY MONEY
Horace Black Johnson, award winning movie director, is a drunk and almost in the gutter. In Money Money Money, a play in a play adjusted as a television series and filmed for a live studio audience, Horace gets one last chance to shine again. Really soon he realises that he is being set up for failure with a contract deal by his studio producers. They force him to go to Holland, Europe and direct a sitcom for television and work with non-union actors, amateurs and even local people picked up from the street. In Money Money Money 2 storylines develop. When the director says action the audience watches the story of the Surinamese creole family Pina, a very religious family who struggles to make ends meet. They suddenly become very rich when after a bank robbery the oldest grandchild David comes home with a lot of cash and bank papers. When the director says cut or more yells cut cut cut and loses his temper, the actor becomes themselves and start arguing with him and each other. During those breaks, the audience witnesses the struggle of Horace Black Johnson. Much to everybody's surprise Money Money Money becomes a major box office hit. The universal story of people struggling showcased in a unique way and developed even further in multiple episodes is something people can relate to.
