But why tell this story? WeWork, for those who do not know, was the darling of many and was valued at almost $ 50 billion.

The deadline informed that Tramell Tillman («Hunters») joined the series cast «Severance» alongside Adam Scott, Patricia Arquette, Britt Lower, Jen Tullock and Zach Cherry. The production, as we already mentioned, will be directed by Ben Stiller.
Created by Dan Erickson, the drama series will take place in the workplace of a fictional company, called Lumen Industries, which aims to “take the balance between work and personal life to a new level”.
