Nicholas Braun (a.k.a. Cousin Greg from 'Succession') Is Starring in a Series About the Downfall of WeWork
International co-working space WeWork had a famously disastrous year thanks to the erratic behaviour of its CEO Adam Neumann. If you haven't been keeping up with the business section of the newspaper, however, fear not. Succession's Cousin Greg is starring in a new show about the scandal.

The actor — and Raptors attendee — also known as Nicholas Braun has signed on to star as Neumann in a new limited series about WeWork, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show doesn't have a title or confirmed network just yet, but it will be based on an upcoming book about WeWork from Wall Street Journal reporters Maureen Farrell and Eliot Brown.

WeWork was once valued at around $50 billion USD, but the company pulled the plug on its public offering in September after Neumann was accused of erratic management and personal enrichment. Neumann then resigned from the company.

The Nicholas Braun show isn't the only property in the works about the WeWork scandal. Universal and Blumhouse are also prepping a film about the whole situation, with The Big Short screenwriter Charles Randolph writing the script.

As previously reported, Jesse Armstrong's Succession will be returning to HBO for a third season, complete with Cousin Greg. So far, though, a premiere date has yet to be revealed.
