Writers, Industry (HBO)


Whatever you make of Industry, the brilliant HBO show, now halfway through its triumphant second series, you cannot deny that it is designed to provoke - to grab you by the scruff of your four-for-a-hundred quid TM Lewin shirt, and feel something - nausea, disgust, sadistic delight, schadenfreude, horror.


The men at the Macbook behind the show are Konrad Kay and Mickey Down, two ex-bankers, which gives them their unique insight into the hellish world of high finance. We met with them to talk about their approach to creating, and the ideas behind the ideas.
