Industry is a British television drama series created by Mickey Down and Konrad Kay produced by the BBC. It premiered on 9 November 2020 on HBO in the United States, and on 10 November 2020 on BBC Two in the United Kingdom.[1][2][3][4] It was renewed for a second season in December 2020.[5]

Industry “follows a group of young graduates competing for a limited set of permanent positions at Pierpoint & Co, a prestigious investment bank in London”.[3]

The initial season explores the graduates from all walks of life compete over the limited amount of full-time employment opportunities and focuses on Harper Stern (Myha’la Herrold), a black upstate New York native who uproots her life to pursue success at the London branch of Pierpoint despite not having graduated from where she claims to have graduated.[6] It also features other graduates, Hari Dhar, a state-school graduate and child of Urdu-speaking immigrants; Augustus “Gus” Sackey, a gay black British graduate of Eton and Oxford; Robert Spearing, a white working-class Oxford graduate who is eager to please but taken by surprise by the change in social mores concomitant with high finance; and Yasmin, a privileged, well-connected child of Lebanese parents with an underachieving, drug-addled boyfriend.[6]
