Amazon To Make A TV Series Off FTX’s Collapse

Amazon is working on a miniseries based on the collapse of crypto exchange FTX.

The e-commerce giant has tapped Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors behind Marvel’s "Avengers" franchise, for the miniseries.

The Russo brothers, the directors of "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers: Endgame," as well as Netflix’s "The Gray Man," will produce the eight-episode series through their production company ABGO.

The series will be written by David Weil, whose previous credits include Amazon’s Hunters and Solos, as well as Apple TV+’s Invasion.

The Russo brothers called Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of the bankrupt crypto exchange, "an extremely mysterious figure with complex and potentially dangerous motivations."

According to reports from Variety, "multiple Marvel actors" have been in discussions over roles in the show.

Alongside the Russos, other executive producers on the series include AGBO’s Mike Larocca, Angela Russo-Otstot, and Scott Nemes, as well as Natalie Laine Williams.
