The scandalous story surrounding the rise and fall of WeWork and founders Adam Neumann and his wife Rebekah Neumann is being made into a series starring Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway. The series, WeCrashed, is based on the Wondery podcast series of the same name and is set to be as dramatic as it gets, with some big names involved in the project both on and off-screen. Here's everything we know about WeCrashed.

What is WeCrashed about?

Like the original podcast it's based on, the series will explore the meteoric rise and equally dramatic fall of WeWork, under the leadership of founder and CEO Adam Neumann. The co-working space company famously went from being a hugely successful disruptor valued at $47bn, to a chaotic set-up with a prophet-like CEO and inescapable problems.

The eight-part series will follow the greed-filled journey of the company's creators, exploring the hubris and narcissism that led to destroyed their success.

Who is starring in WeCrashed?

Starring in the lead roles, Jared Leto will play Adam Neumann alongside Anne Hathaway as his wife and co-founder Rebekah Neumann, with both executive producing the series. We also have some exciting pictures of Leto and Hathaway during filming for the show, and it's giving us eerie cult-leader vibes (which we love).

Frankly, we just want to know how they've made Jared Leto look like Tom Hiddleston x Henry Cavill, but that's a question for another day...

The series also stars O-T Fagbenle (The Handmaid's Tale) and America Ferrera (Ugly Betty), which is a pretty exciting cast if you ask us.

When is WeCrashed being released?

The project is in super early stages right now, so we're not sure of a release date, but since things are currently filing it's likely to be 2022. In the meantime you can enjoy the original Wondery WeCrashed podcast while you wait.
