In the spirit of the great film, Brewster’s Millions, Fox TV has come out with a new comedy called The Goodwin Games. You can see the first episode on Hulu if you want. I’m always a sucker for wacky Will scenarios, and this seems to fit right in. It appears to be about a father who is trying to get his family together after he dies by making them fight over his fortune. The father set up a series of games for the children to play, and the winner gets the full inheritance.
Most likely it will turn out to be a nice twist on the traditional estate litigation that people often encounter in that instead of fighting it out in court, the heirs have to compete in various children’s games (as well as get their lives in order) to be able to inherit anything at all.
