Comedy alum Hank Azaria has joined Showtime’s new anthology series “Super Pumped,” the “Brockmire” star set to take on the role of Apple’s current CEO Tim Cook.
The new series will explore the tumultuous journey that is creating a business from the ground up in Silicon Valley, and how that world can be a breeding ground for bad practices and worse consequences.
The first season will be based on New York Times journalist Mike Isaac’s book which centers on the development and growth of Uber – one of the most successful transportation startups ever.
Azaria joins a cast that includes Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Uber’s former CEO Travis Kalanick, Kyle Chandler as Texas venture capitalist Bill Gurley, and Kerry Bishe as Austin Geidt.
The series was created, written, and executive produced by “Billions” co-creators Brian Koppelman and David Levien along with “Quantico’ writer Beth Schacter.
