I'm so excited to announce I'm directing & ex ecutive producing a new series with @hbo called INDUSTRY. It's all about the cutthroat world of international finance. Think Wolf of Wall Street meets Melrose Place! I've moved across the pond for the summer to shoot this - specifically Wales UK - which is a dreamy place with fairytale gardens, super sweet humans, and dragon mythology. So taking reccs on secret spots, cuisine, you name it! Stay tuned for more! #IndustryHBO (sic)"
