We crashedthe drama about WeWork, starring Anne Hathaway and Jared Leto, was released March 18 on Apple TV.
Leto plays the company’s co-founder, Adam Neumann, while Hathaway portrays his wife, Rebekah. The eight-episode series chronicles the co-working space startup’s “metereal rise and equally dramatic decline” and is based on the Wondery podcast of the same name.
The series follows the couple as they work to build a new future and shows Adam taking the spotlight and edging out Rebekah.

However, before this plan came to fruition, she met Adam, whom she married and with whom she later founded WeWork. The couple have five children together.
