A real-life ‘Succession’ story

Before HBO’s Roys, there were the Binghams of Louisville

I have not, I admit, watched “Succession,” HBO’s ongoing series about the trials and travails of the fictional Roy family, whose patriarch is at at least partially inspired by Rupert Murdoch. I’ve read some recaps on the AV Club website, though, and been curious about the show.
