Showtime has released the new Black Monday trailer and poster. The comedy series stars and is executive produced by Emmy nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Don Cheadle and stars two-time Tony Award nominee and Gramm winner Andrew Rannells (Girls) and Regina Hall (Girls Trip). Screen Actors Guild Award winner Paul Scheer (Veep) also stars.
Black Monday was created by David Caspe (Happy Endings) and Jordan Cahan (My Best Friend’s Girl), who serve as executive producers and showrunners. Emmy nominees Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Preacher, Superbad, Future Man) are executive producers and directed the pilot. The 10-episode series will premiere on Sunday, January 20 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Black Monday takes viewers back to October 19, 1987 – aka Black Monday, the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street. To this day, no one knows who “caused it” … until now. It’s the story of how a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine and the glass ceiling.
A co-production between Showtime and Sony Pictures Television, Black Monday guest stars include Yassir Lester, Horatio Sanz and Michael James Scott, with recurring guest stars Casey Wilson, Ken Marino, and Kurt Braunohler. Emmy and two-time Oscar nominee Bruce Dern, Melissa Rauch, Julie Hagerty, Kadeem Hardison, Eugene Cordero, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Tim Russ and Jason Michael Snow have also signed on as guest stars.
