According to Apple, the series will “follow the greed-filled rise and inevitable fall of WeWork, one of the world’s most valuable start-ups, and the narcissists whose chaotic love made it all possible”.

Leto, 49, and Hathaway, 38, are both Oscar winners.

Leto won the best supporting actor Academy Award for 2013 drama Dallas Buyers Club while Hathaway’s best supporting actress gong came for the 2012 adaptation of Les Miserables.

Both stars will also serve as executive producers on WeCrashed.

WeWork was founded in 2010 and aimed to disrupt the office leasing business.

It hit the headlines in 2019 after its planned initial public offering collapsed amid reports of mismanagement.
