HBO announced today that it has renewed the drama series Industry for a second season.
Created by Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, Industry follows a group of young graduates — fueled by ambition, youth, romance and drugs — competing for a limited number of permanent positions at a leading international bank in London. The insider’s view of the black box of high finance is through the eyes of outsider Harper Stern (Myha’la Herrold), a talented young woman from upstate New York.
The series 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.
Said Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming:
“Mickey and Konrad have captured an authentic, fresh angle on workplace culture from the bottom up and presented a complex look at navigating life in your early twenties – replete with thrills, failures and victories. It’s exciting to see fans embrace these young graduates, and we join them in anticipation of what’s in store for season two…”
The eight-episode first season stars Myha’la Herrold (The Tattooed Heart), Marisa Abela (Cobra), Harry Lawtey (Marcella), David Jonsson (Deep State), and Nabhaan Rizwan (Informer) as “The Graduates” and Conor MacNeill (No Offence), Freya Mavor (Skins), Will Tudor (Game of Thrones), and Ken Leung (High Maintenance) as “Management.”
