Through a new teaser, Showtime has unleashed the very first look at their ’80s-set, Wall Street-themed comedy series, Black Monday (known initially as Ball Street).
Don Cheadle and Regina Hall star in the series which has a 10-episode, first season order. Andrew Rannels also stars.
Set on October 19, 1987 (Black Monday), the worst stock market crash in Wall Street history, the series is the story of how outsiders took on the old-boys club and ended up crashing it all.
Cheadle stars as a “self-educated, self-made, self-destructive master of the universe whose firm the financial press called “the L.A. Raiders of corporate raiders.” Hall stars as “the first female head trader on the street, who’ll ride the second wave of feminism through a sea of horny millionaires.”
The series will hit our screens in 2019.
