WeCrashed Series Story Summary
From a start-up company to a $47 billion-dollar company in under a decade, the WeCrashed series will tackle how a very successful company suddenly reached rock bottom and announced bankruptcy. WeWork was created due to the 2008 credit crisis and the increasing number of freelancers and start-up founders that the crisis generated. It became a hit that the company decided to expand and launched WeWork labs for young businesses. It gave them access to desk space, meeting rooms, and help support from the company. The idea is you could rent a desk for as long as you need, and you can even interact with other freelance workers or start-up founders.
The series is inspired by actual events, which makes it more exciting. The fallout and scandals that involved the company will make viewers understand what caused the downfall of WeWork. Could it be that one time where Adam banned meat at WeWork due to environmental concerns but was, later on, spotted eating meat in the office? Or how about the time when Rebekah was accused of firing employees just because she did not like their energy? Who knows? But we are about to find out by watching the series.
Cast and Characters
Starring in the lead roles are Oscar Winners, Jared Leto who will be playing the role of Adam Neumann, the co-founder of WeWork, and Anne Hathaway, who will play the role of Rebekah Neumann as Adam’s wife and another co-founder of the company.
It is no wonder the series will surely be a top hit given the fact that the lead actors are award-winning artists.
