At the crumbling stately home of Hazelwood Manor, life for its few remaining downstairs staff is about to take a dramatic leap upstairs, when their small syndicate beats the unlikely odds and wins the lottery. Overlooking the seaside town of Scarborough, the once impressive manor has been in the family of Lord Hazelwood (Anthony Andrews) since the 18th century. There used to be more than thirty staff at the house, but now, with a mounting debt of £6.5 million and counting, there are just five remaining since Lord and Lady Hazelwood (Alice Krige) were forced to let the others go. Gardener with high functioning Asperger's Godfrey (Lenny Henry), housekeeper Sarah (Cara Theobold), cleaner Dawn (Elizabeth Berrington), cook Julie (Melanie Hill) and gamekeeper-cum-groomsman Sean (Richard Rankin) all have to pitch in and do more than one job just to keep the household running smoothly. With the future of Hazelwood in question and their jobs on the line, the unthinkable happens -the staff wins the lottery! This touching drama from BAFTA award-winning writer Kay Mellor follows the highs and lows of their journey from downstairs to upstairs...There are now 14.5 million reasons why the lives, and loves, of the staff of Hazelwood Manor are about to change beyond recognition - but will the dream of instant riches be different from the reality?
