Apple has picked up a limited series based on the story of WeWork for Apple TV+, according to a new report from Variety. The upcoming show is based on the six-part Wondery podcast called "WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork."

wework
WeWork in early 2019 was valued at close to $50 billion as it prepared for an IPO, but the company crashed and burned after a series of articles highlighted mismanagement and odd behavior from CEO Adam Neumann, who was quickly ousted. WeWork's IPO was canceled and the company's valuation plunged to $5 billion.

From the podcast that the show is based on:

The founders of WeWork thought they were on the brink of making history. The company was valued at $47 billion dollars, it was ready for a huge IPO, and its charismatic CEO Adam Neumann thought it was going to change the world. Adam had a prophet-like vision for WeWork that he sold to some of the world's savviest investors -- but did his vision ever match the company's reality? Hosted by David Brown of the hit podcast Business Wars, WeCrashed is a six-part series about the rise and fall of WeWork. It's a story of hope and hubris, big money and bigger screwups, and the lengths people will go to chase "unicorns."

Lee Eisenberg, known for ‌Apple TV+‌ show "Little America," is co-writing and executive producing the series alongside former Warner Bros. executive Drew Crevello, who has produced films like "The Grudge 2."

Serious question. For those whom subscribe to Apple TV+, are you enjoying it? Are there enough “‘mature”programs?

Considering subscribing. Thanks for your thoughts!
Almost all of the programs are “mature.”

Some are better than others, depending on your taste. I enjoyed mythic quest the most - excellent comedy. For All Mankind was very entertaining. See was “eh” for me, but I did watch the whole season. The Morning Show got better as the season progressed.

Again, your mileage may vary.

HBO doesn’t have that much new stuff at any given time. Sure, we can go back and watch old sopranos or sex in the city’s or whatnot, but few people subscribe to HBO for that.
I agree. I just came to point out that It’s Sex and the City. “In the city” is a common misconception. :)

Ehh idk. WeWork is very successful.
Can you explain how being successful requires a major bailout from SoftBank?

In a nutshell, WeWork (WW) was a re-hash of Regus, which grew spectacularly, partially flamed out, and then settled into a low-margin office-for-rent business. Anyone who couldn't see that WW was just a redo was either blind, was desperate to launder money or just wanted to suck up to Adam Neumann.
