Timon of Athens is the hottest new reality show in Ancient Greece. The show follows Timon, one of the wealthiest young lords in Athens who's known for his incredible generosity. He loves to lavish his fellow lords with money, presents and parties, truly believing that if he needed something from his followers that they'd step up to support him. Soon enough, Timon's wealth begins to run out and he gets the chance he was waiting for: to find out who in his life are his true friends, and who's just in it for the money. While he focuses on this drama, the city of Athens burns around him, facing political corruption, violent uprisings, and a mysterious new illness ravaging the masses. This Shakespearean satire shows us that issues of political conflict and health inequality have always been a part of the human condition, that being "famous for being famous" was a thing way before the Kardashians, and that while it might be hard to be rich, it's way easier than dealing with the suffering faced by the rest of society.
