WeCrashed (2022), is a recently launched AppleTV+ docuseries that relates the story of WeWork, a coworking space start-up co-founded by an eccentric couple – Adam and Rebekah Neumann.
In less than a decade, with his wife’s help, Adam expands WeWork from a single location to a worldwide brand with coworking spaces in 111 cities and 29 countries.
