Industry, the new series directed by Lena Dunham about the ruthless ambition of the financial world

Industry, the new HBO series that deals with ambition, competition, hierarchy and identity in a context of extremely high professional demand.


Industry tells a story of competing desires, deceptions and disappointments, merits and vices, betrayals, prejudices and injustices, naiveties and ingenuities. A group of young graduates from diverse backgrounds, each with their own pressures and difficulties, skills and flaws, compete for a limited number of permanent positions at a reputable London bank. Harper Stern (Myha'la Herrold), Yasmin (Marisa Abela), Robert (Harry Lawtey), Gus (David Jonsson) and Hari (Nabhaan Rizwan) are “the graduates”, while Daria (Freya Mavor, known for her performance in Skins), Theo (played by Will Tudor, Olyvar in Game of Thrones), Kenny (Connor Macneill) and Eric (Ken Leung, recognized for his performances in Lost and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, among others) are part of the bank's management.


From Harper's peripheral yet at the time internal perspective, Industry offers us a fictionalized view of the hermetical world of finance. In this context, the series delves into issues of class, race and gender, as well as ethical problems within its character’s interactions.

Industry was created and produced by Konrad Kay and Mickey Down. The directors of the first season’s episodes are Lena Dunham (recognized as both a director and an actress, among other things, for her role in the HBO series Girls), Ed Lilly, Tinge Krishnan and Mary Nighy.

Don't miss Industry premiering November 9 on HBO and HBO GO.
