The story of ride-sharing company Uber, which revolutionized ground transportation, is coming to television.
Showtime has given a series order to "Super Pumped," an anthology from "Billions" co-creators Brian Koppelman and David Levien. Joseph Gordon-Levitt ("The Trial of the Chicago 7") is set to star in the first installment, which is based on Mike Isaac’s bestselling book "Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber."
It tells the story of Uber, one of Silicon Valley’s most successful and most destructive unicorns. Pivoting on Travis Kalanick (Gordon-Levitt), Uber’s hard-charging CEO who ultimately was ousted in a boardroom coup, the series will depict the roller-coaster ride of the upstart transportation company, embodying the highs and lows of Silicon Valley.
Even amid the radical upheaval generated within the global tech capital, Uber stands out as both a marvel and a cautionary tale, featuring internal and external battles that ripple with unpredictable consequences.
