TV show description:
From creator Ben Ketai, the StartUp TV show tells the story of the emergence of GenCoin, a new cryptocurrency. While alternative digital money is already a controversial idea, GenCoin also has the dubious distinction of germinating on the “wrong side of the tracks,” thanks to three unknowns who are hardly typical tech engineers.
The drama centers on FBI agent Phil Rask (Freeman). Jaded and corrupt, Rask is out to get what he believes he is owed. Soon, he comes across financier Nick Talman (Brody), who works for a small, elite Miami firm.
Despite his success, Nick has a complex relationship with his rich, reckless father. When the elder Talman vanishes, instead of contacting the FBI, Nick invests his dad’s extralegal profits in Izzy Morales’ new tech start-up.
A bona fide tech genius, Izzy wants to change the world. She ends up partnering with Nick, and by default, Ronald Dacey (Gathegi).
When Ronald, a lieutenant in the local Haitian gang, realizes his money disappeared along with Nick’s father — he pursues the only avenue left to him — Nick. The men ally themselves with Izzy, which lands the whole trio in Rask’s sights. How low will he go to take them down? Stay tuned.
