All ten episodes of “Generation Hustle” will premiere Thursday, April 22 on HBO Max.
Check out the trailer, key art and synopsis of the first two episodes.
Episode 1: “Hollywood Con Queen”
Dreams and deception collide when a brilliant con artist impersonates high-profile Hollywood producers to scam aspiring young artists. After the FBI teams with a dogged investigator to hunt this fraudster across the globe, a twisted tale, reminiscent of classic caper movies, ensues. Directed by Yon Motskin.
Episode 2: “The Party’s Over”
Building a business with nothing but blind ambition, Ian Bick transforms himself from a nerdy teen into a concert promoter almost as legendary as the bands he books. As the teenager’s EDM raves pack houses and feed his emerging VIP lifestyle with first-class trips, high-end shopping, and brand-new jet skis, his fall is as dramatic as his rise – culminating in an FBI raid that shocks his family, friends, and hometown. Directed by George Plamondon.
