To the Other Three People That Watch “The Riches”

It’s no secret that I have been obsessed with British, transvestite comedian/”actor” Eddie Izzard since ninth grade.

I’ve religiously memorized his stand-up routines and rented all his shitty movies. (Sorry, Eddie!)

I even got to see his show live this summer <33333

But one of the most exciting things for Eddie fans was the television series The Riches. And unlike many of his other acting pursuits, it was actually good.

For those of you who didn’t watch it (i.e. anyone who is not an Eddie Izzard fan) the show follows a family of gypsy/con-artists who, through a wacky series of events, end up assuming the identity of a well-to-do family, and have to live the lie.

Well, do the fact that no one watched it (despite it’s critical acclaim and Emmy nomination) it was canceled. It ran two good seasons. It will be deeply missed.

But I read today that…

“I’ve posed to the heads of FX and TBS that we want to make a film. And they said, “Right, we’ll support you.” “Eddie hopes to raise finances for the silver screen version of The Riches on the Internet. He also wants to make it a “road move, shooting in Louisiana and New Mexico, everywhere that they steal,” he exclaims. “We’ll do it by the skin on our teeth.” (from OK Magazine)

Please, please Jesus/Allah/Buddha/God/Secret/Mother Nature let this be true!!!!

Because I feel like I know Mr. Eddie Izzard, I know that this would mean the world to him.

And if they got those same quirky writers and elements of the show, it would be really good!
