"Platinum" was about brothers and record industry moguls Jackson and Grady Rhames, who the archetype of rags-to-riches success after building their company, Platinum Records, from the ground up.

Clawing their way up from the streets, the brothers have created a successful record company in the high-stakes hip-hop music business. Even though they are deeply trusting of and dependent upon one another, the Rhames brothers approach business in starkly contrasting fashions.

Set in New York City against the backdrop of the glamorous hip-hop lifestyle, the series portrays a cutthroat and sometimes dangerous business notorious for its flashy stars with money to burn and ruthless record executives who stop at nothing to make it big.
