A limited series based the of beleaguered tech-centric real estate company and former startup darling WeWork is in the works at Apple, according to a report released Thursday.
Citing sources close to the case, Variety reports that Lee Eisenberg and Drew Crevello work an as-yet-untitled Apple TV+ show based the Wdery podcast “WeCrashed: The rise and Fall of WeWork.”
A former hot topic in the startup community, WeWork was at e point valued at nearly $ 50 billi, but has suffered a fall from grace, after a series of detailed reports of mismanagement and alleged self-dealing the part of co-founder and former CEO Adam Neumann. The filing of a prospectus for a highly anticipated initial public offering, there are losses that have been partly pinned Neumann’s erratic behavior, leading to his ouster in September.
WeWork, therefore, cancelled the ipo and has agreed to a rescue plan from SoftBank, leaving the company with a valuati of about $ 5 billi. A host of high-level executive departures result is that newly installed top brass worked the recstructi of the momentum. WeWork is still a shortage of key leaders, including a chief financial officer and chief technology officer, and has yet to fill other major positis.
In telling the story of the tumultuous life of Apple will be Lee Eisenberg and Drew Crevello, who are tap to write and produce the potential of the show, according to the report. In January, Eisenberg, who co-created the Apple TV+ show “Little America,” signed a multi-year overall to provide ctent for Apple’s streaming service.
Crevello is a former Warner Bros film executive, whose credits include “Tomb Raider” and “The Grudge 2.”
At least two other major projects — a program of films and TV WeWork are in the process of development up to the studios. Unlike Apple “renditi”, the title of the series and the movies are based big media story and future books written by journalists.
