Apple TV Plus' latest-office centric show arrives with WeCrashed. Yes, only weeks after Severance hit Apple TV Plus with a profound sci-fi take on work-life balance, Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway are here to tell the tale of Adam and Rebekah Neumann, and the rise and fall of WeWork.
WeWork, if you've lived outside major metropolitan areas and avoided stories about the highly valued startup, was a company that sought to rent office space to startups and small businesses, while providing value-added services such as shared conference spaces and other amenities.
However, a failure to turn a profit, coupled with lavish spending and a failed IPO led to the resignation of co-founder Adam Neumann — who received a $1.7 billion parachute to soften the fall. His unique and engaging personality — seen in the Hulu documentary WeWork: Or the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn — is definitely the kind of charm that you'd build a show around.
Enter Jared Leto, who plays Adam Neumann, alongside Anne Hathaway who costars as Rebekah. Leto's impression is uncanny, and probably worth the time to try the show alone.

The official WeCrashed trailer starts with Rebekah Neumann trying to push Adam to work on something he cares about. What Adam cares about, though, turns out to be a better version of an office.
The trailer then shows Neumann meeting with Masayoshi Son (played by Kim Eui-sung), the investor who strings Adam along. When Adam's told how much WeWork is going to lose, Rebekah pushes him to work his magic even harder.
The below teaser trailer for WeCrashed starts like an augmented reality video, with Leto's Adam Neumann introducing us to an office that sprouts up out of a desolate building. He then goes on to spread the toxic "at this office, we're a family" nonsense, while his wife Rebekah (Hathaway) tries to sling corporate philanthropy, about how the company will improve the world.
Then, after Adam says that WeWork is a movement, we see more of the jet-set lifestyle, as well as the Burning Man-like environment of the WeWork festivals. We even get a little of Adam's god complex.
There are eight episodes of WeCrashed, and Apple TV Plus is releasing the first three together. Then, the rest come one at a time on subsequent weeks.
