"Behind every great fortune there is a great crime." Based on an idea by former U2 manager Paul McGuinness, the 10-part series "Riviera" centers on a young, recently married woman (Julia Stiles) whose blissful life of Mediterranean luxury is torn apart when her billionaire husband is murdered in a yacht explosion. She soon discovers that the fortune used to maintain his immaculate, gilt-edged lifestyle was tainted with dishonesty, double-dealing, crime and ultimately murder, and finds herself dragged into a world of crime as enemies close in.
The Riviera has never been so tempestuous... The dazzling second season picks up in the immediate aftermath of the explosive first season finale, where the Clios family is faced with the death of one of their own. Only this time, the blood is on Georgina's hands. As she tries to find a way to live with her crime, secrets from her past wash up on the sandy shores of the Cote d'Azur that force her to explore her turbulent childhood against her will. Torn between her past and her present, can Georgina navigate her way to safer waters or will she lose her place in a world that she has grown to control?
