Okay-ish. No deep exploration or anything, but a good enough look at the rise and fall of WeWork, and the toxic work culture inside the company.

Description

Watch the Apple Original series WeCrashed, starring Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway. Now streaming only on Apple TV+ https://apple.co/-WeCrashed

The founders of WeWork thought they were on the brink of making history. The company was valued at $47 billion dollars, ready for a huge IPO, and its charismatic CEO Adam Neumann believed he was going to change the world. Adam and his wife Rebekah had a prophet-like vision—but did it ever match the company's reality? Now the inspiration for a new AppleTV+ series starring Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway, WeCrashed: The Director’s Cut is a complete refresh of our original six-part series. Hosted by David Brown of the hit podcast Business Wars, this six-part series includes new interviews and new discoveries about the rise and fall of WeWork. It’s a story of hope and hubris, big money and bigger screwups, and the lengths people will go to chase “unicorns".

When Scott Galloway gets his hands on WeWork's IPO filing, he can't believe it. Starting with the words “We dedicate this to the Energy of We,” the document sometimes looks more like a glossy brochure than a dry rundown of the company’s financials. The prospectus raises fears about the company's future and questions about Adam Neumann’s outsized role in the company. And for the first time, Adam doesn't have all the answers.

Masayoshi Son, the head of Softbank’s Vision Fund, gives billions to WeWork. “Masa” has just one instruction for Adam Neumann: dream big. Adam and his company go on a spending spree. They buy up everything from companies to buildings to new homes. Big dreams can be a good thing—unless they cease to be tethered to any sense of reality.

Adam Neumann is welcomed into a very exclusive club of real estate moguls and treated as a visionary. But as Adam’s demands, ego and vision grow, the “Spirit of We” starts to fade and his wife Rebekah becomes a bigger part of the company culture, some WeWorkers are even wondering if they’ve inadvertently become part of a cult.

“Let’s build the largest networking community on the planet.” That was the email Adam Neumann sent at one in the morning to one of WeWork’s very first employees, before they had even a single tenant. So how do you turn a scrappy startup into a global empire? If you’re WeWork's CEO, you rely on charm, chutzpah, and a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black.
