Getting to a point where Apple TV+ subscribers actually get to watch WeCrashed has been a long time in the works. In February of 2020, it was initially reported that Apple was working to develop a series based on the “rise and fall of WeWork,” the company that was supposed to change the face of working. And then in December of the same year, we heard that Jared Leto (Morbius) would be starring in the limited series.
Except, it wouldn’t be until January of 2021 that Apple finally actually ordered the limited series and started production. A bit of a windy path, to be sure. But at that time we also learned that Anne Hathaway (The Princess Diaries) would be co-starring in the series alongside Leto.
WeWork was a phenomenon in its own right. What started as a single co-working space grew to a huge entity worth $47 billion — all within a decade. Things turned around pretty quickly, though, as the company’s valuation dropped $40 billion in under 12 months. So, it’s an interesting story to look at, and to tell with lead actors like Leto and Hathaway.
Per today’s teaser trailer:
Inspired by actual events — and the love story at the center of it all. WeWork grew from a single coworking space into a global brand worth $47 billion in under a decade. Then, in less than a year, its valuation dropped $40 billion. What happened?
The upcoming limited series hails from Lee Eisenberg (Little America), who has an overall dealwith Apple TV+. As a result of that, Eisenberg will be an executive producer, serve as showrunner, and co-write WeCrashed. Drew Crevello is co-creator of the limited series, also serving as an executive producer.
Leto will be playing Adam Neumann, Hathaway is playing Rebekah Neumann, and Kyle Marvin is set to take up the role of Miguel McKelvey. And this teaser trailer just gives us a small taste of what to expect from the limited series. But we’ll get to start watching it all unfold beginning Friday, March 18, 2022.
