A sunny beach in New York, palm trees, and in the background a declining empire worth 47 billion dollars. The first photos from the set of the new series of the Apple TV + platform have appeared on the web. WeCrashed will tell the story of the rise and fall of the WeWork startup. Starring Anne Hathaway and Jared Leto.
A tall brown haired woman in a straw hat and linen tunic and a brunette in a mohair sweater and alabaster jeans relaxing in the shade of a bamboo canopy on Atlantic Beach, New York. This was most likely what Adam and Rebekah Neumann, the founders of one of the world’s most valuable startups, looked like when the $ 47 billion company began to collapse.
The limited series “WeCrashed”, commissioned by the Apple TV + platform, will tell about extraordinary business figures. The eight-episode series will bring the founders of WeWork closer to the top, dealing with the arrangement of modern work spaces, as well as the history of their inevitable bankruptcy. The perpetrators of all the confusion are played by Anne Hathaway (“The Devil Wears Prada”, “Les Miserables”) and Jared Leto (“Gucci House”, “Requiem for a Dream”). Until now, it has been confirmed that we will also see the Golden Globe winner America Ferrera (“Ugly Betty”) on the screen.
Based on the Wondery podcast, the screenplay was written by Lee Eisenberg (“Good Boys”) and Drew Crevello, who are also directing.
