‘Black Monday’ Trailer: Seth Rogen-Produced Series Has Don Cheadle Crashing the Stock Market


Check out the trailer for upcoming Showtime series Black Monday, led by Oscar nominee Don Cheadle.

Executive produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Golberg (This Is the End, Preacher), who are both also on board as directors, the series takes a look at the worst stock market crash that Wall Street has ever seen. People who write the robinhood app review you may have read will have likely researched this event extensively beforehand. Black Monday, also known as Black Tuesday in some countries (like Australia; time zone difference), is the name given to 19 October 1987, when stock markets around the world plummeted, a crash that kicked off in Hong Kong, went through Europe, the US, Australia and New Zealand. The US saw a 22% stock market drop in that October, Australia a big 41% dive, and New Zealand a massive 60% crash that would take years to recover. We all know that the stock market can be a very risky game to play so if you’re going to invest, make sure you know what you’re doing.

Looks like they’re going for something like Wolf of Wall Street meets The Big Short with this one, with Cheadle playing Rod “The Jammer” Jaminski, who’s going to “put the brother in Lehman brothers.” It’s a slickly edited, energetic trailer, showing off excess while pumping Lil Wayne’s “Uproar”. Yeah, this one’s going on the list. Check out the “explicit language” trailer below.

Black Monday, also starring Andrew Rannells and Regina Hall, will premiere on Showtime on 20 January 2019.
