WeCrashed is based on actual events — how Neumann (Jared Leto) built WeWork from a single coworking space into a global brand worth $47 billion in under a decade. But it’ll also show how the valuation dropped to $10 billion in a few months amid questions about how Neumann was running the company.
She’ll play Rebekah Neumann, also a WeWork executive. The upcoming WeWork Apple TV+ series will portray “the love story at the center of it all,” according to Apple.
Lee Eisenberg and Drew Crevello developed the series for Apple. Eisenberg has a multiyear deal with Apple, and previously created the critically acclaimed Little America for Apple TV+. The show will be directed by the ream of John Requa and Glenn Ficarra.
The first three episodes of WeCrashed will debut on March 18, 2022. They’ll be followed by new weekly installments each Friday during its eight-episode season through April 22.
