Trust is about Billionaire John Paul Getty III the heir to the American Fortune. Starting in 1973, the first installment will detail the kidnapping of then 16-year old Getty and his family's initial refusal to pay the requested \$17 million ransom. "Dear Mummy," a letter from Getty to his parents said, "Since Monday I have fallen into the hands of kidnappers. Don't let me be killed." His grandfather J. Paul Getty refused to pay, even after the kidnappers sent one of the ears of the younger Getty that they had cut off. After a number of months, the ransom went to down to around \$3 million and the elder Getty, once considered the richest man in the world from his oil holdings, paid a tax deductible \$2.2 million with the younger Getty's father John Paul Getty II paying the remaining \$800,000 to release the teen. John Paul Getty III died in 2011 at the age of 54. A drug related stroke in 1981 caused him to be partially blind and paralyzed for the rest of his life. Brothers & Sisters alum Balthazar Getty, who will appear in the upcomingTwin Peaks revival, is his son.
