GameStop Stock Doc ‘Gaming Wall St’ Debuts March 3 on HBO Max

The two-part Max Original documentary Gaming Wall St, about the GameStop stock controversy, debuts March 3 on HBO Max.
 
Narrated by Kieran Culkin (HBO’s “Succession”), the documentary explores the historic 2021 short squeeze of GameStop, and how a group of armchair investors and online vigilantes ultimately helped expose the dark underbelly of Wall Street.
 
Gaming Wall St peels back the layers of one of the most talked about news stories in 2021, revealing the systemic issues and underbelly of the financial world,” said Joanna Zwickel, SVP of documentary features and series at producer Gunpowder & Sky in a statement. “It’s an honor to have this series live on HBO Max.”

“I wanted to create a compelling documentary about a niche online community which grew into the movement behind GameStop and momentarily shifted the balance of power on Wall Street,” said director Tobias Deml in a statement. “I saw a great need for access to education about investing. We have the opportunity to right a decades-old wrong created by powerful firms that have been gaming the system to the detriment of society. I hope that viewers will feel empowered to see themselves as investors and be part of a much-needed reform to Wall Street.”
