Extremely topical, well acted and surprisingly touching, "Easy Money" is a promising new entry from Media Rights Capital. An off-beat dramedy penned by "The Sopranos" and "Northern Exposure" writers Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider, the series has that quirky, character-driven appeal that usually resonates well with viewers. Set in a fictional Southwestern town, the show revolves around the Buffkin family, which runs a dubious, quick-cash loan service in the bad part of town. The family of misfits and their oddball clients and friends provide a rich palette from which to draw stories.
