HBO has commissioned ‘Industry,’ an eight-part series following a group of young graduates battling it out in the world of finance.

The drama series, which will be directed and produced by the Jewish award-winning actress Lena Dunham, will follow a determined group of 20-somethngs competing for limited jobs at a top investment bank in London.

Production on the series is taking place in Cardiff, Wales, which is home to the show’s production company, Bad wolf.

“The scripts for ‘Industry’ have an energy and direction that comes from their firsthand experience of the trading floor, and their ear for sharp dialogue immediately captured our attention,” Jane Tranter CEO of Bad Wolf said.

The series will be shot later this summer, though a release date appears yet to be announced.
