Disaster no longer, each person! Lena Dunham is coming support to HBO with a total original challenge about spoiled and anxious rich young folks. On Friday, the network announced that Dunham will govt produce and recount Industry, HBO’s original series about finance bros. Uh, that’s upright. Finance bros!
In step with Chop-off date, the Dunham-helmed series is, unsurprisingly, about a bunch of twenty-somethings, though this time, they are no longer pleasing pulling photographs at coffee stores and by accident smoking crack in Bushwick—they’re looking to interrupt into the investment banking world or something.
Per Chop-off date:
The show is decided in the cutthroat world of international finance as viewed via the eyes of mettlesome twenty-somethings struggling to trusty their futures. It follows a neighborhood of young graduates competing for a restricted dwelling of permanent positions at a top investment financial institution in London—but the boundaries between colleague, buddy, lover, and enemy soon blur as they immerse themselves in a firm culture outlined as much by sex, medication, and ego because it is by gives and dividends. As people of the neighborhood upward push and fall, they need to imagine whether or no longer life is set more than the base line.
HBO has inexperienced-lit the series for eight episodes and is decided to beginning capturing this summer season in Wales, with Dunham directing the pilot. Industry is reportedly the brainchild of Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, the up-and-coming British writing duo in the support of the 2014 dismal comedy Gregor, and would be produced by Putrid Wolf, the firm that could per chance presumably also be facing the original Golden Compass adaptation for HBO.
It’s exhausting to imagine the tone of the series based fully mostly off a handy guide a rough synopsis, but a show about investment banking could per chance well additionally very well work, if it goes corpulent-on millennial Succession and doesn’t gain caught in the painfully awkward satire of Dunham’s most sensible show for HBO about glamping or whatever. It’s unclear what, if any, journey Lena Dunham has with the banking world besides having a lengthy-time Scramble financial savings legend or whatever, but finally, it looks admire she’s no much less than making an strive some original issues. Between this, her role in the original Tarantino film, and her inexplicable Syrian refugee movie, Dunham’s no doubt purchased some supremely unfamiliar stuff coming up. Fetch ready!
