What we know so far

For more than a decade, WeWork soared to financial success and looked as promising as other top social networks and workplaces. However, the company finally slipped into disarray, culminating in Neumann’s removal as CEO due to misbehavior claims.

The real story of the scandal-plagued couple will be told in a dramatic miniseries on Apple TV+ based on Drew Crevello and Lee Eisenberg ‘s recent and highly successful podcast.

Rebekah and Adam Neumann, the jet-setting New Age executives, will be played by Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. Ex-employees have compared him to a cult leader because he co-founded the shared workplace startup with businessman Miguel McKelvey in 2010.

The latter is his wife, a Buddhist and business student, certified yoga instructor, and cousin of Gwyneth Paltrow’s, who served as the company’s chief product officer and CEO of WeGrow, a now-defunct Manhattan exclusive school in which tuition went up to $42,000 per year.

What the show is about

Just in case you live under a rock and haven’t been paying close attention to the latest Singapore news making the buzz, the show is adapted from the Wondery podcast “WeWork: The Rise and Fall of WeWork”. It also explores WeWork’s rise and fall from a once $47 billion enterprise.

Limited series includes Oscar victor Jared Leto portraying Adam Neumann, WeWork’s former CEO, and Rebekah Neumann, Rebekah’s former head of brand and business influence and previous CEO of WeGrow, the firm’s former private school, respectively.

based on the six-part podcast WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork, written by Lee Eisenberg and Drew Crevello and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork will be a feature film.

On the kibbutz, where Adam spent his adolescent years, meeting Rebekah and  Miguel McKelvey was a stroke of luck, but the book also includes the tales of old friends and partners whose initial enthusiasm for WeWork rapidly changed to skepticism and disappointment.
