The first season of The Riches aired in South Africa on M-Net from 2 December, 2007 to 24 February, 2008, on Sundays after the 8pm movie (typically around 22h00). There are 13 episodes in the first season.

Season 1

The show features Izzard and Driver as Wayne and Dahlia Malloy; they, along with their family, are Irish Traveller con artists and thieves. They travel with their children Di Di (Dehliah), Sam and Cael.

As the series begins Dahlia has just been paroled from prison. During her two-year sentence, she has developed various drug addictions. In her absence, Wayne and the children have been continuing to act as con artists across the US.

After a brief reunion with their Traveller clan, the family flees to avoid an arranged marriage for Di Di. Wayne steals a large amount of money from the clan's hoard of cash, and the family runs off.

After getting into an altercation and RV chase with another Traveller family, the Malloys are involved in a car accident that kills a very wealthy couple (the eponymous Riches).

Choosing not to return to their clan camp and to pursue a "better life", they instead adopt the Riches' identity in an affluent gated community in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and live as buffers, as they call mundane, law abiding people.
