As I posted last week, The Syndicate, is slated for release on DVD on May 7th and can be pre-ordered on Amazon.co.uk for 12 pounds. ITV has released a trailer for the set which you can watch below:
This is a Region 2 DVD which means that it will not play on most DVD players outside of Europe. Please check your DVD player before buying if you are out Europe. (Here is some information on Regions for DVD’s if you are curious)

Because of it’s great success, The Syndicate has been picked up for a second season (or series for those of you in the UK). This season will not follow the same winners, but I think it deserved a post anyhow. Congratulations to Kay Mellor and the whole team behind The Syndicate.
The second series of The Syndicate, which will follow the fortunes of a new group of lottery winners, has been commissioned by Ben Stephenson, controller of BBC Drama and by Danny Cohen, controller of BBC One.
Speaking about the series success Danny Cohen said: “The Syndicate has been a big hit with BBC One viewers. I’m greatly looking forward to seeing what Kay Mellor and the team dream up for a new set of lottery winners.”
Kay Mellor who wrote and produced the series said: “I am thrilled by the response of viewers to The Syndicate. I enjoyed every minute I worked on the series, from the writing of the scripts to working on set. I am delighted that Rollem Productions are able to bring a second series to BBC One.”
The central truism – that money doesn’t buy you happiness – could so easily have felt heavy handed, but the quality of script and cast lent a real lightness of touch. The idea was simply conveyed in the posture of Jamie Bradley (Matthew Lewis) as he slumped next to his brother’s pool in a fluffy dressing gown, thwarted in love, plagued by his past, the light from the water rippling softly along the walls. His turn as the troubled bad boy, part bruiser, part broken, was particularly strong.
