NIGERIA PART 1
"The Philanthropist" chronicles the heroic adventures of a billionaire-playboy-turned-vigilante philanthropist. James Purefoy ("Rome") stars as Teddy Rist, a successful tycoon whose life is forever changed after rescuing a young boy during a hurricane in Nigeria. Rist is spontaneous and impulsive and quickly decides to channel his passion, power and money into helping those in need. A man who has everything but feels nothing, Rist keeps his adrenaline pumping by putting his business acumen and money-making skills to good use by bargaining with the self-righteous and trading with the nefarious.
