Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber
Super Pumped: The Battle For Uber tells the roller-coaster story of upstart transportation company Uber, embodying the highs and lows of Silicon Valley.
The season pivots on Travis Kalanick (two-time Emmy winner Joseph Gordon-Levitt from Inception), Uber’s hard-charging CEO, who was ultimately ousted in a boardroom coup, and his sometimes tumultuous relationship with his mentor Bill Gurley (Emmy winner Kyle Chandler from Super 8), the plainspoken, brilliant Texan venture capitalist who bets his sterling reputation on Uber’s success – and then has to live with the consequences.
Oscar nominee Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill) stars as Arianna Huffington, the savvy businesswoman and co-founder of The Huffington Post, who was an Uber board member.
