Gaming Wall St


Gaming Wall St


Gaming Wall St is a two-episode documentary series available on HBO Max. It explores the 2021 GameStop short squeeze and the negative practices of Wall Street that were exposed as a result. The series covers topics such as payment for order flow, creative accounting, naked short selling, corporate overvoting, and failures to deliver. Narrated by Kieran Culkin and directed by Tobias Deml, the documentary aims to shed light on the darker corners of the financial system and promote financial literacy.

The series was initiated by Prodigium Pictures in late 2020 and began filming on February 1, 2021, in Nevada. The focus of the documentary shifted from following the Wall Street Bets community to an investigative analysis of the financial markets phenomena underpinning the GameStop short squeeze. The series was edited in secrecy on a compressed timeline of 3.5 months with a team of 6 editors working in parallel and a globally distributed animation team.

Gaming Wall St was released on March 3, 2022, after being green-lit by HBO Max in the fall of 2021. Director Tobias Deml hopes that the documentary will provide access to education about investing and empower viewers to see themselves as investors. The documentary is a collaborative effort between Prodigium Pictures, Biltmore Films, and Gunpowder and Sky, and aims to shed light on the negative practices of Wall Street and promote financial literacy.
