Mickey Down and Konrad Kay’s debut series Industry has been renewed for a second series.
The series, which aired on BBC Two in the UK and HBO in America, follows a group of young graduates vying for a permanent position at the cut-throat investment bank, Pierpoint & Co.
Industry’s first series centres around Harper (Myha’la Herrold, an American fish-out-of-water struggling to find her feet in London’s fast-paced financial district. She is forced to go above and beyond to prove her mettle among a cohort of hyper-competitive graduates.
The series showcases a group of relative newcomers in their first major roles, with Herrold acting alongside Marisa Abela as Yasmin, Harry Lawtey as Robert, and David Jonsson as Gus.
As well as intense work pressure, the youngsters must also balance difficult clients, abusive senior colleagues and an extreme ‘work hard, play harder’ office culture that pushes them to their mental and physical limits.
The series is produced by Bad Wolf for HBO and the BBC.
All episodes of Industry are currently available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
