    Alongside a picture of her standing outside the director's office holding the script penned by British writers Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, Lena wrote on Instagram: "AHHHH! 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)"

    "We're excited to be making their first TV drama series with HBO, who are never afraid to make bold decisions and support new talent."

    Lena will be helming the first instalment of the series and is ex ecutive producing every episode.
