HBO has revealed its upcoming Industry series, from first-time creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay. The drama series will premiere on HBO Monday, November 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT).
The Industry series follows a group of young graduates competing for a limited number of permanent positions at a leading international investment bank in London.
It stars Myha’la Herrold, Marisa Abela, Harry Lawtey, David Jonsson and Nabhaan Rizwan as “The Graduates” and Conor MacNeill, Freya Mavor, Will Tudor and Ken Leung as “Management.”
Industry gives an insider’s view of the blackbox of “high finance” through the eyes of an outsider, Harper Stern (Myha’la Herrold), a talented young woman from upstate New York.
Following a group of young grads fueled by ambition, youth, romance and drugs, Industry examines issues of gender, race, class, and privilege in the workplace as these impressionable young minds begin to forge their identities.
They must do so within the pressure cooker environment and sensory blitz of Pierpoint & Co’s trading floor, where meritocracy is promised but hierarchy is king.
Industry is created and executive produced by Mickey Down and Konrad Kay. It is executive produced by Jane Tranter, Lachlan MacKinnon, Ryan Rasmussen, David P. Davis and by Ben Irving for BBC.
The co-executive producer is Ed Lilly and producer is Lee Thomas. The writers include Konrad Kay, Mickey Down, Sam H. Freeman and Kate Verghese.
The directors include Lena Dunham, Ed Lilly, Tinge Krishnan, and Mary Nighy.
The series will be available on HBO and to stream on HBO Max.
