The first season of ‘Super Pumped’ is based on Mike Isaac’s book of the same name. Planned as an anthology, the series will focus on a different major business world story each season.

Previously announced cast members for the show include Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kyle Chandler, and Kerry Bishé. Gordon-Levitt will star as Uber CEO and co-founder Travis Kalanick, whereas Chandler will play Texas venture capitalist Bill Gurley.

Pivoting on Kalanick and his sometimes tumultuous relationship with his mentor Gurley, the series will depict the roller-coaster ride of the upstart transportation company, embodying the highs and lows of Silicon Valley.

Beth Schacter serves as co-writer, co-showrunner, and executive producer on “Super Pumped” along with Brian Koppelman and David Levien. Paul Schiff, Allyce Ozarski and Stephen Schiff also executive produce. Isaac is co-executive producer.

Azaria has previously appeared on Showtime’s hit series ‘Ray Donovan.’ His role in the show earned him an Emmy for best guest actor in a drama in 2016 and a nomination in the same category the following year.
