Teddy Rist, the billionaire playboy, loves money. He loves earning it, he loves having it, he loves spending it. One of the richest men in the world, Teddy approaches philanthropy with the same intensity that he approaches business. He wants everyone on the planet to have a good education, a solid meal and a healthy life - and he'll go to any extreme to make this happen. From blackmailing a prime minister for women's rights to dodging bullets while delivering a life-saving vaccine, Teddy Rist will take you on an exhilarating global adventure each week.
Shooting in international locations, Emmy Award winner Tom Fontana (Homicide: Life on the Street, Oz) brings us Teddy Rist - a hero who is Bill Gates, Robin Hood and James Bond rolled into one.
