What is it about?
This series is set at a local kennel called Woodvale Kennels.
The owners of the kennels will announce the business is being sold to a larger corporate name.
For one of the workers, Keeley (Katherine Rose Morley), the work’s lottery is her only lifeline.
Luckily she makes a small win, but something does not sit right with the rest of the group.
Creator Kay Mellor has described the new series as “a brand-new story about a syndicate of low paid kennel workers who think they’ve won the lottery but have been robbed of their ticket.
“The chase to confront the culprit takes us to the wealthy French Riviera where the young syndicate find themselves well out of their depth.”
Like seasons three, we can expect to see a ‘betting syndicate’ where a group of friends or co-workers make a collective gambling bet[/caption]
