The eight-part drama began shot in Cardiff and on location in London. The series follows a group of young graduates, in the aftermath of the 2008 collapse, competing for a limited set of permanent positions at a top investment bank in London – but the boundaries between colleague, friend, lover, and enemy soon blur as they immerse themselves in a company culture defined as much by sex, drugs, and ego as it is by deals and dividends. As members of the group rise and fall, they must decide whether life is about more than the bottom line.
CAST: Gus (Deep State’s David Jonsson), Hari (played by Informer’s Nabhaan Rizwan), Robert (Harry Lawtey), Harper (Myha’la Herrold), Yasmin (Cobra’s Marisa Abela), Tom (Game of Thrones’ Will Tudor) and Kenny (Conor MacNeill), and Daria (Skins star Freya Mavor).
The series draws inspiration from the personal experiences of writers Konrad Kay and Mickey Down, who have both spent time in the world of international finance.
Industry has been produced by Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner’s company Bad Wolf, whose other titles include A Discovery of Witches and His Dark Materials.
Nathan Micay scores the series.
