The world of technology is getting their moment in the spotlight.
On Monday, January 10, Showtime released the first teaser of the series Super Pumped: The War For Uber, bida Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Uma Thurman and Kyle Chandler. The first season of the anthology series examines the success of ride-share app Uber and how its founder and CEO. Travis Kalanick knocked from above.
The trailer features Gordon-Levitt as Kalanick, who promises his employees, “Contrary to what you read — I’m not a monster.”
Then, there is Uma, who describes the former Huffington Post co-founder Ariana Huffington. Huffington called Kalanick a “notorious bad boy of tech.”
But it quickly became clear that having a reputation as a bad boy was not good for growing a business. As in Chandler’s character Bill Gurley puts it, “The best thing about Travis is that he’s willing to run over walls to win. The worst thing about him is that he thinks everything is a wall.”
