2021 was a wild year for the stock market and GameStop was one of the many biggest stories. The ailing game retailer’s shortage led to the rise of a new subculture, and the first Netflix project to cover the phenomenon arrives in September 2022.

Coming September 28, Story Syndicate’s docu-series explores the layers of intrigue, from the supercharged power of digital communities to the gamification of commerce that became prolific during the GameStop rush.

Story Syndicate has produced several documentaries for Netflix, including Convergence: courage in a crisis, the files of innocenceand the Oscar winner icarus Y What happened, Miss Simone?

This is how Netflix describes the title:

“This humorous documentary series follows a group of misfit millennials who banded together online to rescue their beloved GameStop from the clutches of Wall Street bigwigs, in a viral David vs. Goliath story for the 21st century.”

Executive producers on the project include Anthony Galloway, Daniel Rosen, Jon Bardin, Dan Cogan, Julie Gaither and Liz Garbus. Amy Hobby produces.

Netflix has yet to release a trailer for the new docuseries, but they have provided us with four first-look images.
