‘Industry’ is a British series set in London in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. It follows a group of young graduates as they compete to land limited job positions at a prestigious investment bank called Pierpoint & Co. The twenty-somethings step into the wide world of possibilities, which doesn’t come without the heavy price one has to pay in the form of time, relationships, or principles.
