Apple TV+ has emerged victorious in a multi-studio bidding war for the rights to Cin Fabré’s memoir, “Wolf Hustle”. The memoir recounts the story of a young black woman’s rise in the male-dominated world of Wall Street in the 1990s. Deadline reports that “Till” filmmaker, Chinonye Chukwu, will adapt the memoir into a feature film and direct and produce it under her company, Where’s the Fire banner alongside Entertainment 360.
In “Wolf Hustle”, Fabré offers a captivating and unapologetic portrait of a young black woman succeeding in the testosterone-laden New York business world. As a former broker on Wall Street, the author’s deconstruction of the business world grapples with what is most meaningful in life, ultimately triumphing over Wall Street at its own game. The project is billed as being a mix of “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “The Big Short”.
The announcement of this new project comes amidst a sea of highly anticipated releases on Apple TV+, which has seen an influx of top talent and critical acclaim in recent years. The streaming platform has become a go-to destination for original programming, thanks to hits like “Ted Lasso”, “The Morning Show”, and “For All Mankind”.
