The Hammers. The Murdaughs. The Royal Family. These family dynasties are the elite-est of the elites: they’ve spent generations controlling their public image, amassing obscene amounts of wealth, and (no big surprise) have more skeletons than you can fit in your front hall closet. On Dark Dynasties, Syd Heller and Olivia Delaurentis dig into the corrupt, criminal, and straight-up weird stories of the rich and powerful to try and answer one question: Where did their power come from? And what is the real legacy these dynasties leave behind? Spoiler: It’s pretty, pretty dark.
