Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Star as Uber CEO in SUPER PUMPED Series at Showtime
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to star in the Showtime series Super Pumped. The series is based on the bestselling novel Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber. Gordon-Levitt will play Travis Kalanick, “Uber’s hard-charging CEO who was ultimately 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.”
The show was first ordered as a limited series, but will now be an anthology series, where each season “will explore a story that rocked the business world to its core and changed the culture.” It is being made by Billions co-creators Brian Koppelman and David Levien.
