When Big Guy Beck dies, the heirs to his estate are given a stipulation (via a pre-recorded video will) before they inherit his wealth. They have to live with Big Guy's illigitimate son, Wild Bill Westchester and his wife Bootsie, and they have to learn to accept the Westchesters as their own family. Of course, this does not bode well with the snooty Becks, and petty rivalries and catfights soon ensue in this sitcom spoof of '80s primetime dramas.Written by
The pilot "Filthy Rich" originally taped at The Burbank Studios (Warner Brothers Studio) with a studio audience. The sets were placed into storage at the studio. The set dressings (furniture, window treatments/drapery, rugs, dressing props) were "tagged HOLD for Hub Braden" in the Warner Brothers property department. Braden's tags became an issue with other outside decorators wanting to use the furniture. WB Property House Rules would not allow the furniture to be rented! After the pilot finally sold, the sets and set dressing/props were set up at the ABC TV (Prospect and Talmadge, Hollywood Studio lot) where more shows were taped, with a live audience. See more »
Were you aware, Marshall, that there is no valet parking at K-Mart?
No, I wasn't.
Then you also probably did not know that people look real stupid driving their own limousines!

I'm watching a few episodes of Filthy Rich right now, going through an old stockpile of VHS tapes. It is excellent! This would make a great addition to TV Land or Brilliant but Canceled.
I'm also amazed at how far backwards we've traveled, as some of the lightweight scenes of this comedy would never be permitted in the overly PC world of 20 years later. And that's sad.
Dixie Carter is great, Delta Burke is her perfect foil. The entire cast seems carefully crafted and perfectly chosen. The overly opulent sets are just as overblown as anything on Dynasty. The dialog is quick, the plots just ridiculous enough. I'll bet reruns of this would even have flown during the writer's strike, moreso than reality shows.
