VIDEO: Seth Rogen’s ‘Black Monday’ Trailer Has Cocaine, Cash, and a Stock Market Crash
1980s-set Showtime series stars Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells, Regina Hall, and Paul ScheerOctober 19, 2018
Wall Street has gone to hell in a cocaine-filled handbasket in the official trailer for “Black Monday,” Showtime’s upcoming comedy series from Stern Show celebrity superfan Seth Rogen and his longtime collaborator Evan Goldberg.
Chronicling the stock market crash of October 1987, the show follows a group of outsiders played by Don Cheadle (“Avengers: Infinity War”), Regina Hall (“Girls Trip”), and Andrew Rannells (“Girls”) looking to infiltrate the “blue blood, old-boys club of Wall Street.”
“I’m going to become the biggest swinging dick on Wall Street,” Rannells’ character Blair exclaims (above) … just before getting forcefully grabbed in the crotch.
In addition to its trio of stars, ”Black Monday” features drugs, stacks of cash, Rolex watches, Adidas jumpsuits, Lamborghinis, and Wrap Up Show veteran Paul Scheer (“Slice”), among others.
Rogen and Goldberg co-directed the “Black Monday” pilot and serve as executive producers alongside David Caspe and Jordan Cahan. When Seth returned to the Stern Show in 2017, he spoke to Howard all about his working relationship with Evan, who’s also his co-E.P. on their AMC series “Preacher.”
“Black Monday” debuts Sunday, Jan. 20 at 10 p.m. on Showtime.
