BLACK MONDAY takes viewers back to October 19, 1987 - aka Black Monday, the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street. To this day, no one knows who "caused it" ... until now. It's the story of how a group of OUTSIDERS took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up CRASHING the world's largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine and the glass ceiling.

A co-production between Showtime and Sony Pictures Television, BLACK MONDAY guest stars include Yassir Lester (Making History), Horatio Sanz (Glow) and Michael James Scott (Aladdin on Broadway), with recurring guest stars Casey Wilson (Happy Endings), Ken Marino (Wet Hot American Summer), and Kurt Braunohler (Bunk).
