The synopsis reads: "Examining issues of gender, race, class, and privilege in the workplace, Industry shows how these impressionable young minds begin to forge their identities within the pressure-cooker environment and sensory blitz of Pierpoint & Co's trading floor, where meritocracy is promised but hierarchy is king."

Speaking to Vanity, producer Jane Tranter added: "The scripts for Industry have an energy and direction that comes from their firsthand experience of the trading floor, and their ear for sharp dialogue immediately captured our attention.”

The Industry has a talented cast of new stars, including Myha’la Herrold plays Harper.

1917 actor Nabhaan Rizwan plays Hari, while Marcella star Harry Lawtey portrays Robert Spearing.

Elsewhere, Cobra’s Marisa Abela is Yasmin Kara-Hanani and David Jonsson is starring as Augustus ‘Gus’ Sackey.
