Overcooked drama about romance and backstabbing at Gardner/Ross, a powerful investment house located in Toronto, Canada.
Sally (Sonja Smits) was the stylish young economist who took over when her father, senior partner Cedric Ross (David Gardner), was arrested for fraud.
Swirling through the convoluted plots were Jack Larkin (David Cubitt), a slick young hotshot from Vancouver trying to break into the big time; Marty (Patrick McKenna), the chubby head trader with a headset who ran the bullpen; and Adam (Bruce Gray), Cedric’s arrogant partner who mixed with the old-line rich and powerful.
The camera swooped and dodged across the trading floor as if looking for a plot, and there were frequent extreme close-ups into characters’ eyes, but the series was nominated and won numerous Gemini Awards in the mid to late 1990s, and most recently listed as one of Canada’s Top 10 best shows of all time.
