Industry, who follows a group of young graduates competing for a limited number of permanent positions at a leading international bank in London, has been a very modest linear scoring artist for HBO since its inception on November 9. It airs at 10 p.m. on Mondays, a night that is less established with the original programming, and will continue to air in that slot on the cable network.

From the new designers Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, Industry provides a glimpse into the black box of “high finance” through the eyes of an outsider, Harper Stern (Myha’la Herrold), a talented young woman from upstate New York. Following a group of young graduates fueled by ambition, youth, romance and drugs, the series examines issues of gender, race, class and privilege in the workplace as these impressionable young minds begin to forging their identity in the pressure cooker environment The Pierpoint & Co trading room – where meritocracy is promised, but hierarchy reigns supreme.
Herrold, Marisa Abela, Harry Lawtey, David Jonsson and Nabhaan Rizwan play the roles of “The Graduates”, with Conor MacNeill, Freya Mavor, Will Tudor and Ken Leung as “Management”.
Industry is produced by Bad Wolf and Down and Kay executive produces with Jane Tranter, Lachlan MacKinnon, Ryan Rasmussen, David P. Davis and Ben Irving.
