HBO/BAD WOLF: INDUSTRY SEASON I

(2020) Production Designer

Dir. Lena Dunham / Mary Nighy / Tinge Krishan / Ed Lilly

Set in the cutthroat world of international finance as seen through the eyes of ambitious twenty-somethings struggling to secure their futures. It follows a group of young graduates 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.
