Plot Synopsis

Each hour-long episode of BROKE AND FAMOUS shows what happens when a celebrity's life of spending and excess turns to one of selling off assets, pinching pennies and taking jobs they never considered at the height of success. Whether it's blockbuster movies, a wealthy family, or chart-topping hit music when the money is rolling and you're a celebrity life is good. But what happens at the intersection of money mismanagement and career crisis? So who -- or what -- was really to blame for these celebs going broke? The series opener chronicles the life of Johnny Depp, one of Hollywood's biggest talents, who is equally at home playing quirky character roles or swashbuckling his way through movie blockbusters. So when news broke in 2017 that he was in deep financial trouble, the world was stunned. Court documents blew the lid on his out-of-control spending, but there was more behind Johnny Depp's troubles than a reckless spending habit. His tortured artistic soul and desire for privacy were in constant and damaging conflict with his worldwide fame and sex-symbol status. Subsequent episodes feature the stories of rapper 50 Cent, Michael Jackson, Tori Spelling, Nicolas Cage, and MC Hammer.
