'Gaming Wall St,' a two-part documentary about GameStop narrated by Kieran Culkin, is coming to HBO Max in March. See a sneak peek.
Kieran Culkin knows a bit about media empires from his Emmy-nominated performance as Roman Roy on HBO's Succession, but now he's diving deeper into that real world by narrating Gaming Wall St, which premieres March 3 on HBO Max.
Gaming Wall St is a two-part documentary from director Tobias Deml that explores the rapid changes in GameStop's stocks in 2021, as well as how armchair investors and online vigilantes helped expose the dark underbelly of Wall Street. You can watch a trailer for it below.
"I wanted to create a compelling documentary about a niche online community which grew into the movement behind GameStop and momentarily shifted the balance of power on Wall Street," Deml said in a statement. "I saw a great need for access to education about investing. We have the opportunity to right a decades-old wrong created by powerful firms that have been gaming the system to the detriment of society. I hope that viewers will feel empowered to see themselves as investors and be part of a much-needed reform to Wall Street."
The documentary is produced by Gunpowder & Sky, Prodigium Pictures, and Biltmore Films. Floris Bauer, Van Toffler, Janet Brown, and Joanna Zwickel executive produce for Gunpowder & Sky, with Tessa Byford producing for Prodigium Pictures, and Burke Koonce and John Fichthorn producing for Biltmore Films.
"Gaming Wall St peels back the layers of one of the most talked about news stories in 2021, revealing the systemic issues and underbelly of the financial world," said Joanna Zwickel, senior vice president, documentary features and series, Gunpowder & Sky. "It's an honor to have this series live on HBO Max."
