INDUSTRY tells the story of five fresh-graduate interns gunning for limited full time positions at the prestigious London bank, Pierpoint & Co.

While I recognize its faults overall, the inner trashy-reality-TV-viewer in me was instantly sucked into the high octane, high stress lives and conflicts the show offers. And the drama. So much of it!

Every character reminded me of someone I had met studying finance in college, and many scenes brought me back to my first full-time job after graduating, desperately trying to prove I was deserving of a job that I hated.

INDUSTRY is the cross-pollination of EUPHORIA, SUCCESSION and I MAY DESTROY YOU in all of the best ways.

The entire first season is available to binge (and you will binge!) on HBO Max.
