Madoff (ABC) – Starts 3rd February – Miniseries
Drama based on the life of Bernie Madoff, who ran the worlds largest Ponzi scheme. It follows him from the discovery of one of his clients starting up a similar scheme that starts the ball rolling for the government to start looking into his dealings.
With narrated flashbacks showing how Madoff started out and how the scam worked and was put into effect, it shows how he rose up to become the chairman of NASDAQ, produced fraudulent documents to beat audits and the mistakes that lead him to get caught.
With it being a two ep miniseries it goes along at a decent pace and doesn’t get bogged down in the minutiae of the dealings keeping it easy enough to follow.
