The surprise fall of co-sharing workspace company WeWork has inspired filmmaker-producers Lee Eisenberg and Drew Crevello to develop a second TV series on Apple TV+.

The Apple TV+ series on the WeWork debacle will be based on David Brown’s WeCrashed podcast from the podcast network Wondery. WeWork was valued at nearly $50 billion but suffered a fall after reported mismanagement and alleged self-dealing on the part of co-founder and former CEO Adam Neumann.


Eisenberg co-created Apple TV+ show “Little America” which received rave reviews while Crevello is a former film executive who was associated with “Tomb Raider” and “The Grudge 2”.

The first TV series was announced in December and will star Nicholas Braun, better known as Cousin Greg on HBO’s Succession, as Neumann.

A movie about WeWork is in the works, reports Variety.

Earlier this month, WeWork named Indian-American real estate veteran Sandeep Mathrani as the new CEO of the company.

Mathrani’s appointment comes at a crucial time when WeWork is trying to stabilise its business following its failed attempt to go public last year and the departure of Neumann.

Following the setback which led to a dramatic fall in its valuation, Japan-based technology investor SoftBank took 80 per cent ownership of the company and infused into it $5 billion in new financing.

Eating fruits is one of the most satisfying ways to tackle sweet-tooth cravings while meeting your nutritional needs. Despite many studies and research on fruit consumption in diabetes, there are a lot of speculations on the right kind of fruit consumption and its relation to blood sugar levels.

Eating seasonal and locally available fruit has many health benefits ranging from reducing sugar and inflammation levels to fighting high blood pressure -- thanks to their abundant vitamins and mineral presence! They are a powerhouse of antioxidants like vitamins A, B, C, E, and minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, and fiber.

The fruits listed below are not just diabetic-friendly but are loaded with fiber and water content which can slow down the sugar spikes and sugar absorption rate. Apples are not just nutritious and filling; According to a study, they are significantly associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes if consumed in moderation.

Actress Kangana Ranaut has talked about how her weight adjustments for her latest 'Thalaivii' that "messed up many things" in her body and left her with "permanent stretch marks". For her role in the film, based on the life of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and former actress J. Jayalalithaa, Kangana had to gain 20kg and undergo major physical transformation several times.

She took to Instagram to share her experience, detailing that doing all that over the six months period left her with "permanent stretch marks". "Gaining 20 kgs in 6 months and loosing it all within 6 months that too in my thirties messed up many things in my bodya I also have permanent stretch marks as well but art comes to life with a price and more often than not price is the artist him/herself," she wrote.

"Thalaivii" showcases the varied aspects of Jayalalithaa's life, tracing her journey as an actress at a young age to becoming the face of Tamil cinema, as well as the rise of the revolutionary leader who changed the course of the state's politics. Talking about her upcoming works, Kangana currently has 'Dhaakad'.

She is also shooting for her next 'Tejas', where she plays a fighter pilot. The Indian Air Force was the first of the country's defence forces to induct women into combat roles in 2016. The film takes inspiration from the landmark event. 'Tejas' is directed by debutant Sarvesh Mewara. The film will be RSVP's second film which pays a tribute to the Indian military after the immensely successful film "Uri: The Surgical Strike" which was released in January 2019. (IANS/ MBI)
