Video-on-demand service Apple TV+ has commissioned a miniseries based on the saga of WeWork, the shared office giant that almost went bankrupt after becoming a darling of Wall Street, with Jared Leto playing the role of its colourful former boss Adam Neumann.
“WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork,” will follow “the greed-filled rise and inevitable fall of WeWork, one of the world’s most valuable startups, and the narcissists whose chaotic love made it all possible,” Apple TV+ said in a statement.
Founded in 2010, WeWork was built on the model of shared office space, combining both flexibility and user-friendliness. A start-up with a dynamic and innovative image, WeWork quickly won over investors, reaching a theoretical valuation of $47 billion (roughly Rs. 3,42,664 crores) in January 2019.
