Apple TV+ Orders Limited Series ‘WeCrashed’ Starring Jared Leto And Anne Hathaway

Apple TV+ has given a series order to “WeCrashed,” a new limited series based on the hit podcast “WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork” starring Academy, Golden Globe and SAG Award-winner Jared Leto and Academy, Golden Globe and SAG Award-winner Anne Hathaway, who will both also serve as executive producers.
