Logline: Welfare To Wealth is a “rags-to-riches” unscripted, original television series that offers individuals on welfare who have a vision for a better life an opportunity to make it a reality.

Synopsis: With the current assault focused on health and welfare programs, Welfare To Wealth is timely, and brings a fresh and up-close spotlight on the issue through a character-driven format with lead characters not fitting the typical American’s view of a welfare recipient, and ones appearing to fit the stereotype. In a world focused on social relationships in media, where is the “social” in social welfare? Welfare To Wealth is a way to change the conversation and narrative by bringing these stories into the social realm in a fresh, new way.

Each season Welfare To Wealth will feature individuals who are on welfare based upon the exhaustion of unemployment benefits, or due to mental health and/or physical challenges, or other reasons beyond their best efforts to take care of themselves and/or their loved ones. The audience will witness their ups, downs, challenges, triumphs, and ultimate transformation with assistance from a special team of four experts to help them along their journey from not enough to plenty.
