Ferrera joins previously announced cast members Jared Leto, Anne Hathaway, and Kyle Marvin. The series is based on the Wondery podcast of the same name. It is described as following the greed-filled rise and inevitable fall of WeWork, one of the world’s most valuable startups, and the narcissists whose chaotic love made it all possible.
Ferrera will play the role of Elishia Kennedy, a brilliant young entrepreneur seduced into joining WeWork whose life is turned upside down as a result.
On television, Ferrera is known for her starring roles in the ABC series “Ugly Betty” and the NBC series “Superstore.” On the film side, she has starred in projects like “Real Women Have Curves,” “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” films, and the “How to Train Your Dragon” films.
