How far would you go for the biggest deal of your career? "Wall Street meets The Social Network." It's a rare behind-the-scenes look into the shadowy world of billionaire investors -- where egos and intrigue collide and a single deal worth hundreds of millions of dollars must get done at any cost.
Episode 1 - "The Idea"
We join Jason, a new private equity associate, whose weekend is ruined when he gets called into work and is ordered to find a company for his firm to invest in. He struggles to balance that with taking care of and paying for his sick grandfather. Meanwhile, his friends Todd and Leonard discuss a tiny company, IonX, which might want to sell -- in the midst of getting rejected by two girls. Jason calls dozens of CEOs to no avail, and gets frustrated enough to give up as he's given an ultimatum by his boss David -- which forces him to take desperate measures to save himself.
