The HBO drama series, Industry follows a group of young graduates competing for a limited number of permanent positions at a leading international bank in London. The series gives an insider’s view of the black box 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 fuelled 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 within the pressure cooker environment and sensory blitz of Pierpoint & Co’s trading floor, where meritocracy is promised but hierarchy is king.
The series also stars Marisa Abela, Harry Lawtey, David Jonsson, and Nabhaan Rizwan as “The Graduates” and Conor MacNeill, Freya Mavor, Will Tudor, and Ken Leung as “Management”.
From first-time creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, HBO’s new eight-episode drama series Industry debuts same time as the U.S. on Tuesday, 10 November at 11am exclusively on HBO GO and HBO (Astro Ch 411 HD) with a same day encore at 11pm on HBO. A new episode premieres at the same time weekly.
