David King Stars in Secret Millionaire
62 year old David King is one of the world’s most successful international musical theatre producers with hit shows around the globe and the biggest employer of dancers in Europe. David now has an estimated fortune of over 20 million from making his own versions of successful shows.
Based in Monaco, David shares his luxurious lifestyle with his 30 year old ex-chorus line dancer girlfriend, but life wasn’t always like this; before David hit the big time he ran a small jewellery business, took too many risks, got on the wrong side of the law and ended up losing everything including his wife and family. His wheeler dealer attitude put a strain on his relationship with his disapproving father who passed away before he could see David turn his life around and become a success.
David is leaving his glamorous world of show-business to go back to his hometown of Leeds, a place he left with a cloud over his head many years ago. He’s going to South Leeds, where crime and drug abuse is an everyday reality. Here David will pretend he’s researching for a new musical, but really he’ll be looking for people to help.
David is known for his ruthless no nonsense approach, but nothing could prepare him for the shocking event that takes place during his time on The Secret Millionaire…
