Showtime has given a series order to “Super Pumped”, an anthology series with the first season based on Mike Isaac’s bestselling book “Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber.” Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“The Trial of the Chicago 7”) has signed on to star in the first installment as Travis Kalanick, Uber’s hard-charging CEO who was ultimately ousted in a boardroom coup.
Each season of “Super Pumped” will explore a story that rocked the business world to its core and changed culture.
Brian Koppelman and David Levien (“Billions”, “Rounders) and Beth Schacter (“Soundtrack”) will executive produce, write and serve as showrunners on the series. Paul Schiff, Stephen Schiff and Allyce Ozarski will also executive produce and Isaac will co-executive produce the project. “Super Pumped” will be produced by Showtime and is part of Koppelman and Levien’s overall deal with the network.
