Hailing from newcomers Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, Industry follows Harper Stern (Myha’la Herrold), a talented young woman from upstate New York who sets off to see if she can cut it working on the trading floor for Pierpoint & Co, a top investment bank in London.

Harper isn’t the only young grad looking to prove herself in an effort to secure one of the limited set of permanent positions at the company. Ambition may be a driving force, but as the first trailer for the series teases, the crop of young graduates are equally as fueled by youth, romance, and drugs.
