The Georgina Play lives on: Showtime has renewed Wall Street comedy “Black Monday” for a second season.
Starring and executive produced by Don Cheadle, the sophomore run will have 10 episodes and is slated to debut in 2020.
“Black Monday” also stars Andrew Rannells and Regina Hall, both of whom are producers. The series was created by showrunners David Caspe and Jordan Cahan. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are also producers.
“‘Black Monday’ mines big comedy from the greed, the style, the music, and the excess of the ’80s, but it’s also sneaky smart in its social commentary about that era – and indirectly, our current era as well,” Gary Levine, Showtime’s president of entertainment, said in a Monday statement. “We can’t wait to see what inspired depravity David and Jordan will cook up in Season 2.”
The Showtime and Sony Pictures Television co-production takes viewers back to October 19, 1987 — aka Black Monday. To this day, no one knows who “caused” the worst crash in stock-market history … until now. “Black Monday” is the fictional story of how a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine and the glass ceiling, per Showtime.
