Plot Synopsis

In this half-hour comedy series, it's 1983 Essex, and cocky salesman Vincent Swan and his unscrupulous team at a double-glazing showroom do anything to get the sale -- including throwing honesty out the window. His team at Cachet Windows includes Fitzpatrick, a smarmy reprobate who can charm the life savings out of anyone, and Lavender, a failed musician whose crippling politeness and moral backbone have a habit of getting in the way of a sale. It's a story of dodgy shenanigans, scams and petty rivalries -- alongside free-flowing drugs, cash and sex. The series opens as they take a bet on whether Fitzpatrick can pull off the ultimate salesman's con, and sell new windows to someone he's recently sold the exact same windows to. Meanwhile, Vincent's attempt to convince an old colleague to join the double glazing business takes an unexpected turn. Vincent later faces a fall from grace as he loses his job, wife, and house in his bid for professional glory. Can he rescue everything with one final gamble in a race to placate the tax man? On Thursday, August 17, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the six-episode first season of WHITE GOLD, marking the show's U.S. premiere. Two months earlier -- on Wednesday, June 28, the night of the Season 1 finale -- BBC renewed WHITE GOLD for a six-episode second season, where Vincent and the Cachet Windows team delve deeper into Essex's criminal underworld.
