Back in September, Seth Rogen dropped a teaser for his new Showtime original series Black Monday, featuring Kids See Ghosts' "Freeee (Ghost Town Pt. 2)" as the soundtrack. Fans were hype off of the '80s vibe, and wanted more. Well, thanks to Showtime, we got the first episode gifted to us ahead of its January 20, 2019 premiere.
The series, which is about Black Monday (October 19, 1987), aka the date of the worst stock market crash on Wall Street. It's been said that no one knows exactly WHY the market crashed the way that it did, but Black Monday will examine this moment in time, giving insight on all of the players, movers, and shakers that made this possible.
The series stars Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells, Regina Hall, and Paul Scheer and is said to feature the likes of Kadeem Hardison on as a recurring character, among others. Cheadle is on as an executive producer alongside Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (who also directed the first episode, "365").
